Diplomate, American Board of Dermatology

Dr. Gutierrez is a Board Certified Dermatologist and specializes primarily in medical and general dermatology.

Dr. Gutierrez grew up in San Diego, CA. He completed his undergraduate studies at UCLA with a B.S. in Physiology. He remained at UCLA for his medical school training under the UCLA/Drew Medical Education Program. While in medical school, he was awarded the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science Outstanding Service Award, the UCLA School of Medicine Aesculapian Award, and the Roberta A. Lee Achievement Award for his academic performance and pursuit of medical excellence. In addition, he earned several City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles, and California State Recognition Awards for dedicated leadership and community service.

Upon obtaining his medical degree, Dr. Gutierrez devoted his internship year working in an underserved community at the King/Drew Medical Center. Subsequently, Dr. Gutierrez completed his Dermatology Residency training at Harvard Medical School. While in Boston, Dr. Gutierrez was able to refine his dermatology knowledge and expertise at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Boston Children’s Hospital.

After residency, Dr. Gutierrez was recruited to return to Southern California. He joined the faculty at the Division of Dermatology at UCLA as an Assistant Clinical Professor, allowing him to teach and train residents and students. While at UCLA, Dr. Gutierrez contributed several publications to the dermatology literature, and was three-time recipient of the UCLA Healthcare Star Award for clinical service and compassionate care.

Since 2010, Dr. Gutierrez relocated to the South Bay and provided the highest dermatologic care to the local beach communities of Palos Verdes, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. During this time, Dr. Gutierrez continued to be an active Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.

Dr. Gutierrez has now decided to expand his commitment beyond the South Bay region. He is looking forward to collaborating with former colleagues and reconnecting with members of the Santa Monica and surrounding communities. We are very excited to provide our patients with access to an exceptional associate, with extensive clinical expertise from America’s most prestigious institutions of Harvard and UCLA. We are extremely proud to have Dr. Gutierrez join our practice, and continue to enhance our commitment to offer our patients the highest and most compassionate experience in addressing their dermatologic needs.
