MEET DR. BINHLAM

Board Certified Dermatologist

A native of Kentucky, John Q. Binhlam, MD, FAAD, received his undergraduate degree from Vanderbilt University (VU) in Computer Science and Mathematics.

Dr. Binhlam is an active mentor and educator of medical students, residents, and other physicians.
