About the Provider

Laura Boger, MD, is a board-certified dermatologist at MedStar Washington Hospital Center and an instructor at Georgetown University School of Medicine. In her practice, she applies evidence-based treatments for dermatological diseases in adults with a special interest in complex medical dermatology, psoriasis, autoimmune blistering diseases, general autoimmune disease, rheumatology dermatology, and inpatient hospital dermatology consultations.

The nature of practicing in an academic setting, such as MedStar Washington Hospital Center, means that Dr. Boger looks at the entire context of whatever is problematic for the patient. She works with residents and medical students in their training, helping them to become thorough and investigative dermatologists.

Dr. Boger received her medical degree from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, where she stayed for residency training in both internal medicine and dermatology. She is a member of the American College of Physicians and the American Academy of Dermatology and holds dual board certifications in Internal Medicine and Dermatology.

Philosophy of Care

"I take the time to listen to my patients and address their concerns fully. It’s important to me that I help them understand their condition as well as the underlying cause, so we can work together on creating a management plan that works best for them."

"It’s a privilege to take care of my patients. It’s rewarding for me when I feel like I connect with them and I am able to help with their condition. I also aim to collaborate with referring physicians to coordinate care and determine the best treatment plan for our patients."
