English Dermatology is proud to announce Dermatologist Dr. James Yousif has joined the practice. Dr. Yousif will be located at the Gilbert medical office, providing his expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer as well as medical and surgical dermatology.
Dr. Yousif received his undergraduate degree from Wayne State University in biological sciences and obtained his medical degree from Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine before serving as the chief dermatology resident at Lakeland Regional Medical Center in St. Joseph, MI.
