I completed my residency in dermatology from Boston University and graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medical School with Honors and was an inductee of Alpha Omega Alpha, the National Honor Society for Medical Students. I chose dermatology because I love being able to help people in a way that they can see and I love the strong connections I build with my patients by helping them feel more confident about their skin. I am passionate about all aspects of dermatology and aesthetics, but especially love acne and scar treatments. I am an international speaker for many skin care brands including Sephora, Johnson and Johnson, Eucerin, Skinceuticals, Christian Dior, and Ole Henriksen. I love outdoor running, downhill skiing, and pilates!
Holly Miller is an experienced FNP-C. During her education at Fresno State, a colleague of hers encouraged her to work in Dermatology, because it’s the one specialty where you can make a difference that people can see. That colleague was Rao Dermatology PA-C, Joseph Contreras- and it was history ever since. She’s been with the Rao Dermatology team for over five years, and loves her “second family.” Holly explains that Dr. Rao’s humble nature and big heart to lead the team has shaped her to be the practitioner she is today. She loves the Rao Dermatology skincare products, specifically Rapid Recovery Cream, and is a firm believer in scheduling a skin check at least once a year for proper care. Outside of the office, you can find Holly gardening with her family, working on her home, or flipping the page in her latest read.

Bree Parker, PA graduated from Bethel University in Minnesota after working in orthopedic medical device sales for four years. Bree decided to switch her career to becoming a Physician Assistant so she could have more of a hands-on role treating patients. Bree chose Dermatology because she is passionate about helping patients develop or regain confidence through achieving clear skin and maintaining proper skin health. Her goal is for patients to be able to focus on the bigger moments of life and not allow a skin condition to serve as a source of anxiety, distraction, or pain. Bree’s dermatology interests include acne, skin cancer treatment and prevention, laser treatments, and injectables such as Botox & fillers to enhance the overall appearance and promote confidence. In her free time, Bree enjoys anything outdoors, but especially boating with her husband and two dachshunds.
I graduated from Milan Institute at the top of my class and have always had an interest in skincare. My goal is to help others look and feel their best self through proper at home skincare regimens as well as in office treatments. My top areas of interest are Hyperpigmentation, Anti-Aging and Acne. My favorite products and treatments include Chemical Peels, Diamond Glow (our newest treatment), Needle-Free Serum, Brightening Pads, and TNS+ Advanced Serum. Outside of skincare my hobbies vary from reading, crocheting, cooking, and planning fun adventures with my husband and children.
