Board-Certified Dermatologist
Home / About  / Our Physicians / Heather D. Rogers, MD

Heather D. Rogers is a board certified dermatologist and fellowship trained dermatologic surgeon. A Washington native, Dr. Rogers attended Stanford University and returned to Seattle for medical school. Dr. Rogers completed her dermatology residency at Columbia University Medical Center in New York, NY where she served as chief resident and started the first dermatology clinic for organ transplant patients in the state of New York. She also received a prestigious travel grant from the Women’s Dermatologic Society allowing her to spend six weeks in Australia studying skin cancer and its treatments including photodynamic therapy. She then completed two procedural dermatology fellowships with extensive training in Mohs micrographic surgery, surgical reconstruction, laser procedures and aesthetics. Dr. Rogers worked as faculty at Columbia until moving back to Seattle in 2009. She lectures internationally, has published numerous articles and book chapters and is an active member of the American Academy of Dermatology media expert team. In 2017 she named Top Doc by Castle Connolly nationally and Seattle Met Magazine locally.

Within dermatology, she has a particular interest in the treatment and prevention of skin cancer and scars. She loves making beautiful, hidden scars, combating the consequences of too much sun and creating the perfect anti-aging treatment regimen for each of her patients (it will always include sunscreen!). Dr. Rogers is a national expert in photodynamic therapy (PDT), coauthoring the 2015 treatment guidelines for the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology. She also created RESTORE, a petroleum-free and allergen-free balm in response to both her patients’ requests for a petroleum-free ointment to use after skin procedures, and Dr. Rogers’ frustration with the unnecessary allergens found in the products currently available.

When not reminding her patients to protect their skin, Dr. Rogers enjoys spending time with her husband and their two children out on the water or in their kitchen.
