Dr. Chris Bacchi
Dr. Bacchi welcomes clients in a comfortable, gentle, and affirming environment, collaborating with each one to bring each their inner beauty to the surface using highly individualized treatments. She takes the time to identify her clients’ conditions, expectations, and desired outcomes in order to craft the most effective approach. As a physician, she understands the body and the aging process at a cellular and systemic level, and can match the right technology to each client’s concerns.
What sets Dr. Bacchi apart is that as part of any treatment she does a comprehensive health evaluation to minimize side effects, and teaches clients how their actions can maximize and sustain the benefits they achieve.
Her treatments feature state-of-the-art equipment in a nurturing environment. She collaborates with clients in achieving and exceeding their goals for prevention, intervention, and maintenance—celebrating the beauty we all carry within us, but might not have yet seen.
Dr. Bacchi’s education covers many areas of medical practice, giving her the unique perspective of someone who has studied healthcare from different perspectives. She originally earned her undergraduate degree in nursing, which gave her a warm and non-judgmental bedside manner, and went on to work at The National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. She earned a master’s degree in Health and Medical Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, and then a medical degree at the University of California, San Francisco. She completed her residency at Stanford University.
By choosing to seek out a wide range of training, she gathered experiences that deeply affect how she practices today. As part of her master’s degree, she obtained a certificate in bioethics from Cambridge University, England. While at Stanford, she had the opportunity to rotate to Queen’s Hospital on Oahu, which included time spent at a leprosy clinic. As part of her residency, she trained in dermatology at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital. There she was invited to author a chapter on the use of topical steroids in the gold-standard textbook of dermatology in general medicine by Fitzpatrick.
