Alyssa Gruenberg, PA-C 

I am a board certified Physician Assistant (PA-C). I graduated from Burlingame High class of ’07 and then enrolled in U.C. Santa Barbara where I earned an undergraduate in Biology.  I then worked in health care for two years as a medical scribe in an emergency department in Concord. Following the example of my mom, who is a nurse, and two of her sisters who are PAs, I was attracted to the medical field. I was fascinated by their stories about solving problems and making diagnoses so I decided in high school to follow their lead. I graduated with a master’s degree in Science and Physician Assistants Studies from Concordia University in Wisconsin.

My first contact with Balfour Dermatology was as a child under Dr. Beer’s care, which ignited my interest in Dermatology. Now that I am working with Dr. Beer, my career provides opportunities in improving the quality of the lives of so many patients. I enjoy interacting with our patients, solving challenges of diseases of the skin, treating acne, detecting skin cancers and assisting Dr. Beer with complex skin cancer surgeries.

I love the outdoors and enjoy hiking. I also enjoy traveling to other places and other countries. I went to South America on my honeymoon, where we enjoyed the Mendoza Wine Country in Argentina and exploring the history and culinary delights in Santiago, Chile. I have fond memories of the amazing empanadas that we found there.
