Dear Patients, Colleagues, and Friends,

I am writing this letter to announce my plans for retirement.  On June 30, 2024, I will be retiring from direct patient care with Peninsula Dermatology and Laser Clinic. My last clinic day will be June 27, 2024.  I will continue reading dermatopathology and assisting administratively at least until 12/31/2024.

I have been practicing in Kitsap County for over 40 years and in Pierce County for over 20 years. It has been an absolute pleasure to be able to help provide Dermatology care and develop a personal relationship with so many patients over that period of time.

I have also enjoyed participating as an Associate Clinical Professor at the Seattle VAH for some time in the past,  and have enjoyed being able to assist in the care our Veterans.

The creation of Peninsula Dermatology and Laser Clinic has helped provide a larger network of Dermatology care for our community. I am very proud of our 10 providers and support staff that make this possible. 

I leave you in the good hands of my colleagues at Peninsula Dermatology and Laser Clinic.  I am confident that they will deliver you the quality of healthcare that I have provided to you over the years. Our providers are listed below:

Kerri Robbins, M.D., Partner – Mohs Surgeon- Gig Harbor Clinic
Philip McLain, M.D. – General & Surgical Dermatology, Cosmetic Dermatology – Gig Harbor/Tacoma/Silverdale Clinics
William R. Bies, PA-C – General Dermatology – Silverdale Clinic
Rachel Sammis, PA-C – General Dermatology -Silverdale Clinic
Casey Pinch, PA-C – General Dermatology – Gig Harbor Clinic
Donella Curcio, PA-C – General Dermatology & Cosmetic Dermatology – Gig Harbor/Tacoma Clinics
Lauren Williams, ARNP – General Dermatology – Gig Harbor Clinic
Eve Schoenefeld, PA-C – Cosmetic & General Dermatology – Gig Harbor Clinic
Jessica Neal, ARNP- Cosmetic & General Dermatology – Gig Harbor/Tacoma Clinic
Lisa Rehberger, ARNP – Adult General Dermatology – Tacoma Clinic

It is with mixed emotions that I proceed with retirement. The timing of this decision is always difficult.

I want to thank all my patients for the trust and confidence they have had in me as their Dermatologist for all these years. I also want to thank them for the friendships we have developed.

Upon my retirement, all medical records will be safely maintained by Peninsula Dermatology and Laser Clinic. We will be happy to forward them upon your written request to any provider you would like that is participating in your care.

Warm Regards,

Eric O. Rasmussen, M.D.
