Janet L. Roberts, MD

It has been my pleasure and passion to provide dermatological care to many of you for the past 30 years. The joy continues. I feel that my patients become friends as I strive to provide the best possible care. How fortunate I am to have truly loved my life’s work. My specialties continue to be hair-related disorders, cosmetic and general dermatology.


I moved to Portland over 30 years ago to complete my dermatology training and have never wanted to leave. I was raised in Southern California and Phoenix. I worked my way north pursuing my medical training. My husband and I raised our daughter (now a physician) and son (now an environmentalist) in Portland and feel very fortunate to have five lovely grandchildren. My passions outside of medicine include spending time with family, gardening, art and exotic traveling.
