Dr. Chelsea Loy has always been attracted to the southern culture of eastern North Carolina and was thrilled to join the Summit Dermatology team in 2017. She hails from Williston, North Dakota and studied Health Sciences at the University of North Dakota. After an internal medicine residency at McLaren Macomb in Michigan, Dr. Loy trained at Aspen Dermatology in Utah and served as the chief resident. She holds a BS in Health Sciences and Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. She is a member of the AOA, AOCD, and Phi Beta Kappa. Dr. Loy says, “I am passionate about dermatology because I suffered from severe atopic dermatitis as a child. I was hospitalized for weeks at the Mayo clinic and National Jewish in Denver. So I decided to become a doctor, specifically a dermatologist, at the age of 10.”
Her practice includes but is not limited to skin cancer detection, treatment and prevention. She also treats a variety of dermatological concerns including eczema, psoriasis, actinic keratosis and rash.
Dr. Loy and her husband are actively involved in elephant conservation through the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos initiatives and are trained elephant sanctuary volunteers.
