Centre woman named ‘top physician’

Dr. Lorraine Rosamilia

STATE COLLEGE — A Centre County dermatologist and Lock Haven native has been selected as one of “Pennsylvania’s Top Physicians Under 40” by the Pennsylvania Medical Society.

Dr. Lorraine Rosamilia, daughter of McElhattan residents Bob and Celia Larsen of Lock Haven, treats skin conditions and skin cancers in patients of all ages at Geisinger Health System in State College.

In 2018, she will serve as president of the Pennsylvania Academy of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery.

Her medical areas of interest are infectious diseases, psoriasis and acne.

She attended medical school and residency training in dermatology at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center in Hershey.

Her professional interests include resident and primary care teaching and scientific journal editing.

Geisinger Health System recently honored Rosamilia at its annual Top Patient Experience Clinicians Awards Dinner for ranking in the top 10 percent in patient experience nationally.

Rosamilia currently serves on the editorial and review boards of several medical journals. She is certified by the American Board of Dermatology.

In addition to practicing, she teaches dermatology residents and primary care practitioners and delivers lectures on dermatology locally, nationally and internationally.

One patient reviewer on the Geisinger website wrote, “I recommend Dr. Rosamilia to everyone!! She is a skilled practitioner who is also friendly, caring and extremely personable.”

The Pennsylvania Academy of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, which Rosamilia will lead next year, represents the interests and concerns of all dermatologists and their patients in Pennsylvania. It was founded in 1966 to address the educational, socio-economic and political issues facing dermatology in the state.
