Barbara Kinkle was born in Chico, CA. After graduating from Corning High School she moved to Southern California to pursue her passion for medicine. She attended the Physician Assistant Program at Moreno Valley College, where she trained at the busy Level II trauma center- Riverside County regional Medical center, serving the less fortunate and surrounding communities. During that time she volunteered at free clinics in Coachella Valley. After earning her NCCPA graduate degree she began practicing at a busy dermatology office in Redlands, CA, where she practiced for 1 year.
It was the opportunity of a lifetime to be able to return to her hometown and work at North Valley Dermatology. Moving back to Northern California allowed her to be close to family and pursue her passion for outdoor activities with her husband and son.
Barbara’s practice includes general dermatology care including full body scans for skin cancer. She also offers cosmetic procedures including Botox, filler products and sclerotherapy for spider veins.
