Tamara Frederick, PA-C
Dermatology Physician Assistant
Tamara graduated cum laude from Valparaiso University with a Bachelor of Science in health science. She then attended Augsburg College in Minneapolis, where she earned her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies.
Tamara has been practicing dermatology since 2016, and she joined Vanguard in 2021.
She takes care of patients who have medical dermatology conditions of all kinds, including acne, warts, eczema, dermatitis, moles, and skin cancer. She is accepting new patients at our Briargate and Pueblo offices.
Tamara was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs. She spent her summers camping, fishing, and hiking, so she developed an early love of the outdoors.
Tamara met her husband while they both attended Valparaiso University. Together, they moved to Iowa where Tamara worked as a CNA/cardiac telemetry monitor. Following graduation from PA school at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Tamara practiced medicine in Illinois to be closer to her family.
She started her PA career in family medicine but quickly developed a special interest in dermatology. Tamara appreciates the connection she makes with her dermatology patients.
Tamara is thrilled to join the Vanguard team and fulfill her dream of living close to the mountains. In her free time, Tamara enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, and enjoying the outdoors. She lives in Colorado Springs with her husband and three daughters.
