Philosophy of Care
Dr. Burrall finds dermatology very interesting - and fun - because it combines the study of many diverse fields of medicine. With dermatologic disease, treatment decisions are often influenced by the patient's feelings about the disease, so she tries to include her patients actively in the decision-making process and the treatment plan. Good dermatological health requires avoidance of excessive sun exposure. Using good sun protection also proves extremely beneficial. Overall good patient care necessitates cooperation among different specialists and the primary care doctor, a good working relationship that focuses on the patient. Dr. Burrall has been associated with UC Davis since 1981, and enjoys collaborating with physicians from many other specialties to provide outstanding care for her patients.

She offers computer-imaging body mapping of moles to track changes.
