Rooted in the community, Southwest Michigan Dermatology is here for your skin care needs.

Southwest Michigan Dermatology is a practice that was born in Southwest Michigan by people who live in Southwest Michigan. Our patients benefit from this because all of the services that we provide are performed locally. From scheduling your initial appointment with our communications team, to being checked in by our front desk staff, to visits with our medical assistants and providers, all the way to our in-house billing team, you are speaking with someone who lives and works in our community.


In 1998, Dr. David Semler and Dr. Craig Mohney started the practice in Portage, Michigan. It quickly grew to become the preeminent dermatology practice in the area. To keep up with the needs of the community, Southwest Michigan Dermatology brought on Dr. Jessica Liggett, Dr. Ryan Jones, and Dr. Jeffrey Globerson, as well as multiple physician assistants. We encourage you to browse a full listing of our providers to get to know each of them.
