Dr. Weir and Dr. Bowen met through mutual acquaintances in 2017 and their families became fast friends. They live in the same neighborhood; their children go to school together and constantly want to get together for playdates. Over the last few years they felt called to join forces and start a fresh new practice with a focus on family values, patient-centered care, and cutting-edge medicine. The culmination of their combined vision is the launch of Dermatology Associates of Lincoln. They are joined by knowledgeable and compassionate Physician Assistants with a diverse background and over 20 years of combined dermatology experience.
