We recently had the opportunity to learn more about Dr. Todd Troxell, his approach, and the path that led him to pursue becoming a board-certified dermatologist.

Where did you go to college?

I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Cincinnati. During undergrad, I headed the Forensic Psychology Lab, volunteered at Children’s Hospital, and studied abroad in Nantes, France.

What made you decide to pursue a career in dermatology?

Dermatology excites me because it is mainly visual (diagnosing) and hands-on (surgical). Additionally, throughout many international medical trips, I witnessed firsthand the overwhelming need for dermatology services worldwide. I saw a unique opportunity, through dermatology, to positively impact community health in underserved areas within the US and internationally.

What is your number one tip when it comes to taking care of your skin?

Protect yourself from the sun and moisturize daily.

What is your favorite aspect of being a dermatologist?

I enjoy meeting a wide variety of people and working with them to improve their health and self-esteem.

How would you describe your approach to treating patients?

Teamwork. We make the most progress by working together. Any doctor can find sickness, but it takes the patient and doctor working together, as a team, to maximize health.

If there is one thing you want your patients to know about you, what would it be?

I will listen to you and treat you the same as I would my family.

What do you like to do when you are not in the office treating patients?

I enjoy getting out in nature and being active. For me, nature is grounding and inspiring.
