Brentwood Dermatology is thrilled to welcome Dr. Lilly Zhu to our practice! She began seeing patients in August and is already an integral part of our team.
Education & Training
Dr. Zhu grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. She was first introduced to dermatology while working in a science research lab as she pursued her undergraduate degree in Biology at Stanford University. Although she knew nothing about dermatology at the time, the wonderful dermatologists she met left a lasting impression on her.
In 2011, she came to Nashville to attend medical school at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. While there, she began exploring dermatology as a med student and decided to pursue it as her specialty. After medical school, Dr. Zhu completed her dermatology residency at Vanderbilt and earned the honor of serving as chief resident during her final year.
A Passion for Dermatology and Helping Others
Dermatology fascinates Dr. Zhu because it is such a diverse field. As a dermatologist, she gets to treat patients of all ages with a variety of symptoms, including skin, hair, and nail conditions. She also enjoys how she is able to improve the quality of life for her patients who need medications or medical procedures.
In addition to addressing illnesses, Dr. Zhu will provide cosmetic procedures. In her daily practice, she’ll get to use all of her medical tools and follow patients throughout their entire lifetime.
The special relationship between a doctor and a patient is one of the things that drew Dr. Zhu to medicine. She loves empowering patients to take ownership of their skin by teaching them how to care for themselves properly.
General Dermatology at Brentwood
The Brentwood practice is in a phase of modernizing, and Dr. Zhu is an asset in implementing an innovative electronic medical record (EMR) system. Using an EMR makes it possible for doctors and patients to communicate through an online portal. Electronic records also improve the patient’s experience and care, and they make doctor visits more convenient.
As Dr. Zhu creates her rhythm and grows her practice, she’s appreciated the fantastic team at Brentwood Dermatology, who has made her transition so easy. The entire team is excited to grow together and provide the best possible care for patients.
Dr. Zhu provides general dermatology care to a wide variety of patients. As a general dermatology practitioner, she’s excited to be able to provide diverse offerings and help as many patients as possible.
