“Treat every patient as if they are family.” 

About Me

Darin Kleinsmith, MS, PA-C

I wanted to help people and provide a valued service, so that every day I feel fulfilled as I get to continue my journey in the healthcare field

During clinical training, I fell in love with Dermatology, I love the mix of procedure based medicine. I love that I can focus solely on patient care. 

I believe your skin is a type of litmus test for your well-being, it can show us what imbalances there are and acts as a window to what is going on inside your body.
My goal is to listen to patients make them feel heard. And to have mutual respect and understanding.

The best advice I can give my patients:
Drink plenty of fluids, wear sunscreen and cover up when the sun is at its worst. Avoiding excess sugars and eat whole foods. 

I believe stress, nutrition, exercise all have impacts on your health, including “skin health” which can be a direct reflection of your internal health. 

I love mountain Biking, Cycle Touring,  Hiking, Ice Hockey, Soccer, Australian Rules football.

Being a local I love having much of my family in the area. I am supported by my partner, Ryan and two wonderful pups Mia and Sofia.
