Meet Our Team
Angelica Ibarra, PA-C
Angelica is Metropolis Dermatology’s lead Physician Assistant with over a decade of experience treating complex dermatologic conditions. Angelica was born in Manila, Philippines, but was raised right here in Los Angeles. She received her undergraduate degree from UCLA and her Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Western University of Health Sciences.
She loves all things Dermatology and enjoys diagnosing and treating conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. Angelica, having worked in beachy Santa Monica for many years, knows the importance of patient education and developing an expert eye for skin cancers and other skin conditions common in sunny SoCal. She believes in good, simple skincare regimens and preventative, non-invasive treatments for skin maintenance. Her mission is to bring positive radiant energy to her patient relationships while providing the highest quality dermatologic care and offering sound scientific-based advice to all of her beloved patients. Angelica is also fluent in Spanish.
Starla has been a licensed Aesthetician for over 10 years and is also a Certified Dermatology Technician through the Association of Certified Dermatology Techs (ACDT). In addition, she is certified in Skinceuticals and Dermalogica, as well as having extensive experience working with medical grade skin care lines.
Starla thrives in an environment where she is able to help people feel their best while supporting their skin health and enjoys customizing treatments based on her clients’ individual skincare needs.
Despite being a Los Angeles native, our practice manager finds DTLA surprisingly new territory. After over a decade of working for some of the most well-known dermatology practices on the Westside of the city, Whitni decided the opportunity to work in the new DTLA was worth taking the 10 east for a change.
Whitni brings unmatched leadership, creativity, and a desire to succeed to our team, which impacts every aspect of our interface. Her commitment to Metropolis and its patients has helped cultivate the patient experience our practice is known for. When asked which superhero trait she’d pick and why Whitni says she would choose teleportation to better afford her love of travel!
