Brandie Metz, MD

As a mother of two and a fellowship-trained pediatric dermatologist, Dr. Brandie Metz is dedicated to helping kids overcome all types of dermatologic conditions. Dr. Metz served as the Director of Pediatric Dermatology at University of California Irvine for over five years prior to founding her thriving private practice. From family-friendly décor and iPad entertainment during surgeries to Dr. Metz’s warm, approachable style, patients and their parents are made to feel right at home. “Taking care of children requires a very different approach, especially when we need to perform procedures,” she says. “I will never tell a child something won’t hurt if it will. Instead, I set expectations and explain everything to them at their level. This helps to build trust.” When not treating patients, Dr. Metz indulges her creative side through photography, weekly ballet classes and a passion for interior design. “I used my love for design in planning our new office space. I aimed to create a place where everyone – from toddlers to teenagers – feels comfortable.”
