Dr. Brindise’s passion is to help her patients achieve lifelong healthy and beautiful skin. She enjoys spending time collaborating with her patients on how their skin and visual appearance help define them as an individual. She thrives on educating her patients about their skin conditions and the importance of preventative skin care. She prides herself on providing each patient with compassionate and individualized care in all aspects of medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. Dermatology has provided her the greatest opportunity to combine her passion for visual analysis and acuity with her enjoyment of challenging problem solving.
Dr. Brindise began her study at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, completing a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. She earned her doctorate at the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, where she graduated at the top of her class and served as president of the American Medical Women’s Association. She completed her residency in dermatology through Michigan State University at Oakwood Southshore Medical Center in Trenton, Michigan. She distinguished herself during residency and was selected to supervise and coordinate all cosmetic training and education.
The last several years Dr. Brindise has been in private practice in Michigan, where she remained academically active and an integral part of the residency program. Her sharp aesthetic eye and cosmetic perceptiveness allowed her to become an expert in botulinum toxin and dermal filler injection and the highest volume physician injector for her practice regionally. Scholastically, Dr. Brindise has published several book chapters and peer-reviewed articles in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Brindise grew up in the Chicago suburbs and is very excited to be back, planting her own family’s roots, with her husband and two sons, in the place she calls home. (She is fluent in Polish.)
