APRIL LARSON, MD, FAAD
After an internship in Internal Medicine at the University of Utah, Dr. Larson completed her dermatology residency in New Hampshire at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in 2007, where she received outstanding clinical training in general dermatology. She remained on faculty there for a year while her husband concluded his anesthesiology training. At that point, in 2008 they decided to move closer to family and were drawn to St. George, which was reminiscent of the small towns of New England.
Dr. Larson enjoys all aspects of general dermatology, including patients at high risk for melanoma and other skin cancers, genetic skin disease, acne, rashes, and cosmetic dermatology. She loves caring for people of all ages.
She is married to Josh Larson, who practices anesthesiology in St. George. Her hobbies include tennis, soccer, lizard hunting, and unicorns, or whatever else her four children are doing.
