Brian Reber, PA-C
Brian is a graduate of the Physician Assistant Program of Stanford University. In 2012 he begins his 7th year with Redding Derm where he specializes in medical and surgical dermatology services under the supervision and mentorship of Dr. Kraffert. Brian brings to Redding Derm diverse experience in the field of medicine. He graduated from Albright College in Reading, PA with a bachelor’s degree in biology and moved to California in 1979 where he trained to be a paramedic. He worked for the City of San Francisco Emergency Medical Services, Paramedic Division, for 14 years where, in 1991 he was the recipient of the Paramedic of the Year award. After graduating from Stanford's PA program in 1995, Brian transitioned from the arena of emergency prehospital care to family practice medicine where he worked in a community health center dedicated to serving the primary healthcare needs of the underserved community and migrant farm workers in the San Joaquin Valley.
Brian has specialized in dermatology for 10 years now. He maintains his proficiency through Dr. Kraffert’s ongoing mentoring and affiliations with colleagues in the Society of Dermatology PAs, AAPA, and by attending national dermatology educational meetings. Every 6 years he is required to pass a national certification exam which tests general medical knowledge.
Brian mirrors Dr. Kraffert’s passion for excellence in the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions. When you see Brian, you can expect that he will spend the extra time you need during your office visit to help you better understand your skin problems and treatment plans. Here at Redding Derm, he is especially interested in the more challenging acne cases and the management of psoriasis. Brian also provides vascular laser treatment for facial veins and is the provider at our outreach office in Mt Shasta.
Brian lives in Redding with his wife, Peggy and two lovable terrier rescue dogs. In addition to his professional and academic duties, Brian loves cooking, plays a fairly good game of tennis, and golf. In 2007 he earned his FAA private pilot license.
