About Me

Hi, my name is Shilpa Agarwal, and I am a board-certified dermatologist specializing in general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology.


I am originally from the Washington, DC, area. I attended the prestigious program at the George Washington University School of Medicine and graduated magna cum laude. Following medical school, I stayed at the George Washington University Hospital for my internship. Subsequently, I trained in dermatology at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. There, I had the opportunity to serve as the chief resident during my last year. I have published several peer-reviewed articles and book chapters during my training and career. I am a member of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.

About my practice

After working in private practice in New Jersey, I am excited to bring my breadth of skills and experience to Kaiser Permanente in Southern California. I see members for a wide range of conditions in both general and surgical dermatology. I look forward to providing individualized and personalized care for members.

How I thrive

In my free time, I love spending time with my husband, traveling to new places, and running along the beaches of sunny Southern California.
