Home / About  / Our Physicians / Heather D. Rogers, MD, FAAD

People flock to Dr. Heather Rogers, a renown double board-certified dermatologist, because they trust her honest and astute guidance on how to best care for their skin. Her patients know she only recommends products or procedures she would use herself and will challenge misleading claims made by her industry. Dr. Rogers finds joy in helping others live as fully as she does, coming alongside them to realize healthy, beautiful, and natural results.

Co-founder of her Seattle-based practice, Modern Dermatology, Dr. Rogers is a highly-skilled surgeon, specializing in both Mohs micrograph surgery and cutting-edge aesthetics, making her uniquely qualified to cure skin cancer with minimal scarring—the most rewarding part of her job. With 15+ years of clinical experience, Dr. Rogers holds the respect of her peers—perennially listed as a Top Doctor in Seattle and among the top 1% most awarded physicians in the US. But patients who know her best affectionately refer to her as ‘The Doctor Who Stops Time.’

Limited by her six-month waiting list and seeing a real need for products that are good for the skin, body, and planet, Dr. Rogers founded her namesake skincare line. Her products use fewer, high-quality ingredients that are effective, hypoallergenic, nontoxic, and biodegradable. When coupled with the education Dr. Rogers routinely shares through Instagram (@drheatherrogers) and her blog, her products empower people to achieve their best skin.

Dr. Rogers is a graduate of Stanford University, University of Washington School of Medicine, and completed her dermatology residency and fellowships at Columbia University Medical Center. Interviewed frequently by national press outlets, she serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Washington Division of Dermatology and lectures internationally on skin care, aesthetics, and improving patient outcomes.
