    Dr. Natalia Vecerek, MD is a board-certified dermatologist at Keck Medicine of USC, who provides care for a variety of skin conditions, including acne, eczema, psoriasis, rashes and infections. Dr. Vecerek also offers screening services for skin cancer. She believes in fostering collaborative relationships with every person who comes to see her for care. Dr. Vecerek ensures each patient understands their diagnosis and all treatment options, so they can make informed care decisions.

    Her research interests are focused on dermatology conditions commonly encountered in hospital settings, including drug and chemotherapy skin reactions, systemic infections and other severe rashes. She also has an interest in lymphomas that affect the skin and improving treatments for more common skin conditions, like acne.

    Dr. Vecerek has published multiple articles in peer-reviewed journals and delivered presentations around the country. In addition to her clinical and research work, she is a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC.

    Outside of her dermatology practice, Dr. Vecerek, who is a Los Angeles native, can often be found at the beach. She enjoys working as a Los Angeles County ocean lifeguard — while wearing plenty of sunscreen! She also loves spending time with her husband and two dogs.
