Liza Byrne, PA-C, Board-Certified Physician Assistant has Resigned
September, 2019

With much love and careful consideration of her patients and Pima Dermatology family, Liza Byrne, PA-C, board-certified Physician Assistant at Pima Dermatology since 2008, has resigned from our practice to care for a dear family member. We are so very grateful for the incredible care she has provided to our patients and the genuine friendship forged with us over the years.

Ms. Byrne has a proven track record of patient safety and satisfaction, providing diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and various skin conditions, surgical excisions and biopsies, and laser tattoo removal. She has always placed great importance on providing her patients with outstanding care and the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their skin.

We honor her many contributions as a provider and hope that we will work with her again one day! For now, it is not “Goodbye” – but rather, “Until we meet again”!
