Provider Bio down arrow

​Melissa Koopmann, physician assistant, sees dermatology patients for conditions like acne, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, skin cancer and melanoma checks, cyst removals and more.  ​

Melissa Koopmann, dermatology physician assistant, has held a passion for health care since a young age.

“I always felt a calling to care for others, but was first introduced to the field of medicine during my childhood when requiring spine surgery. The compassionate care that I received inspired me to choose a career in medicine. I explored several different fields, but ultimately choose the P.A. career path, and I have absolutely no regrets. To make an impact on a patient's health and well-being is rewarding," she said.

Koopmann received her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in North Chicago, Illinois. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Working as a dermatology P.A. has allowed her to create lasting, meaningful relationships with her patients and has provided her the opportunity to care for a range of patients and conditions.

Koopmann sees a variety of dermatology conditions in patients of all ages, including acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, alopecia, warts and molluscum, nail disorders, cyst removals and provides skin cancer screenings and melanoma checks.

“I am very lucky in the fact that no day is ever the same for me! I particularly enjoy treating acne patients; the negative impact of uncontrolled acne can be profound. I love observing my patients become more confident as they achieve improvement - it is truly life changing for them," she said.

She also enjoys working with patients who have chronic skin disease, saying it's wonderful to help those patients and to see the positive changes her care makes.

As a provider, Koopmann says it's important to spend time listening to her patients and helping them feel comfortable during their visit.

“In doing those things, you really get to know them and start to build a trusting patient-provider relationship.  What makes me feel like I made a difference is my patients being happy and feeling comfortable with me and knowing they received great care."

Outside of health care, she lives an active lifestyle and enjoys running and cross-country skiing, traveling, cooking and gardening.

Koopmann is a Wisconsin native and is happy to be living and working where her roots are and being close to her parents and extended family. ​
