About Me

Biographical Statement

Dr. Anna Axelson is a board certified dermatologist who treats a broad range of skin conditions. Her clinical interests include the medical treatment of acne and rashes such as psoriasis and eczema, skin cancer diagnosis and treatment, skin care in transplant patients, and management of the dermatologic side effects of cancer treatment. She also performs some cosmetic procedures such as lasers, chemical peels and Botox/fillers.

"When not working, I can be found running, cooking and exploring all that Michigan has to offer. Having grown up in Georgia, I enjoy bringing a southern slant to the Mitten State."

Care Philosophy

"The skin is our most visible organ and when our skin is healthy, it helps us feel our best. I believe in caring for the patient as a whole and tailoring treatment plans for each individual patient. From the seemingly most straight-forward acne diagnosis to more complex multi-organ diseases like lupus, improving skin health can enhance our psychological well-being, our mood and our very sense of self."

She took her time to understand my condition by asking questions and updating my history and came up with a plan of action that would roll out as fast as blood work was completed.


Being a healthcare provider myself, I felt *Dr. Axelson left the resident to himself far too much. I had to remind him to wipe one of my excision sites with an alcohol wipe prior to excising.


Dr Axelson is very friendly and professional


The doctor was very nice explaining everything.


She is the best doctor ad professional, knows the latest medical information, and very personal and understanding
