Dr. Carla Fisher has practiced medicine for over 20 years and dermatology for more than 16.  Her comprehensive approach includes general dermatology, surgical treatment of skin cancers and also cosmetic dermatology.  Understanding that effective doctor-patient communication results in better cure rates, disease prevention and patient satisfaction, Dr. Fisher values each patient’s individual needs and concerns.  

Dr. Fisher received a Bachelor of Science degree in biology and graduate degree in physiology from the University of California, Riverside.  She then attended medical school at the Uniformed Service University of the Health Sciences, F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine in Bethesda, MD, graduating in 1986.  She completed an internship in family practice medicine at Naval Hospital, Camp Pendleton, CA; as well as the flight surgery program at Naval Air Station, Pensacola, FL.  She served two tours as a naval flight surgeon, becoming one of the first women to deploy on an aircraft carrier throughout the Pacific.  Dr. Fisher returned to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda to complete her dermatology residence program, subsequently serving as Chief of Dermatology at the Naval Hospitals at Great Lakes, IL and Bremerton, WA before completing her naval career. 

Dr. Fisher returned to private practice in Petaluma, California and continues to enjoy building long-term patient relationships.
