Dr. Tromberg is a board certified dermatologist who completed a fellowship in Mohs micrographic surgery at Arkansas Skin Cancer Center in Little Rock and her dermatology residency at the University of Virginia.

She and her husband, a Charlottesville native, and two children, are thoroughly enjoying the Charlottesville community. When Dr. Tromberg isn’t treating skin cancer, she and her family enjoy traveling, hiking in the Blue Ridge mountains, choral singing, dogs, and baking.
