Joe Gatti is a native of the Pacific Northwest, joining Ventana Wellness after concluding 15 years of active duty military service in the United States Army. Ultimately, Joe returned to the Pacific Northwest to focus on his family and his love for dermatology.
After graduating from Del Norte High School in Crescent City, CA, Joe successfully pursued his dream for a Congressional appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. Following his graduation and commission as a Second Lieutenant in May 2005, Joe then applied to and excelled in the military’s Interservice Physician Assistant Program through the University of Nebraska Medical Center. After graduating with a Master of Physician Assistant Studies (MPAS), then-Captain Gatti spent the next four years serving the Soldiers of Schofield Barracks, Hawaii as a dermatology focused Physician Assistant.
Joe is highly passionate about medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology, with a particularly keen interest in excellent cosmetic results with dermatologic surgeries and procedures. “I don’t want my patients to only LOOK healthy,” he says, “but after healing, know they ARE healthy!” He is certified and trained in such areas as cosmetic and surgical procedures and takes great pride in the ability to offer patients maximum flexibility for their dermatologic needs while minimizing the necessity of seeing multiple clinicians.
After touring Ventana Wellness and meeting the staff, he realized that no other clinic or facility approached the quality of Ventana Wellness; he knew that he had to be a member of this team!
