About Dr. Keith Llewellyn
Dr. Llewellyn (pronounced “lou-well-en”) is board certified by the American Board of Dermatology. He has been practicing in Santa Barbara since 2003. He moved to Santa Barbara from Washington, DC where he completed his dermatology residency and served as chief resident at The George Washington University. His training also included clinical rotations and grand rounds at the National Institutes of Health and National Children’s Hospital.
In addition to general and pediatric dermatology, he also developed expertise in dermasurgery, Mohs surgery and cosmetic dermatology while working at The George Washington Cosmetic and Laser Surgery Center. At The George Washington University, he had the privilege to work with Raymond Barnhill MD, an internationally recognized expert in melanoma. Along with the clinical experience he acquired in treating melanoma and moles, Dr. Llewellyn published an article and a textbook chapter on the subject.
Prior to his dermatology residency, Dr. Llewellyn completed two years as an internal medicine resident at The Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. He graduated with honors (Alpha Omega Alpha) from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 1998. He attended college at Miami University (Ohio) and graduated with honors (cum laude) in 1994.
Dr. Llewellyn is an active member of numerous professional societies. These include the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, American Society for Mohs Surgery, California Medical Association, Tri-County Dermatology Society and Santa Barbara County Medical Society.
On a personal note, Dr. Llewellyn grew up all over the country. He called twelve different places home (nine states and one US territory: Guam). He chose to move to Santa Barbara because it seemed like the perfect place to be a “small town doc”, settle down, raise a family and pursue his passions. He enjoys hiking, biking, surfing, paddleboarding, kayaking, sailing, running, camping and just about anything else outdoors (with sunscreen and a wide brimmed hat of course!). He has a lovely wife and three beautiful little girls.
