Dr. Denise Puthuff was preparing for medical school admission and completing a master’s in anatomy when as fate would have it, a spot opened in the medical school class above her, which she of course accepted. Five years later, she graduated with both degrees. She eventually ended up back in her hometown of Louisville and opened Brownsboro Dermatology with her close friend, Dr. Laura Klein. Read more about her journey in this month’s Dr. Who.
