Welcoming Dr. Rachael H. Kappius


Please join us in welcoming our newest dermatologist to Mountain West Dermatology. Rachael H. Kappius is a board-certified dermatologist who practices medical, surgical, and
cosmetic dermatology. She completed her medical degree at the University of Florida College of Medicine and dermatologic training serving as Chief Resident at the Medical University of South Carolina. She has a passion for educating her patients about their skin and how to safely enjoy time in the sun! She specializes in skin cancer detection and treatment, acne, eczema, psoriasis, autoimmune disease, and pediatric dermatology. Dr. Kappius chose the field of dermatology because she loves connecting with patients and making them feel better about living in their skin. 
She enjoys working with patients to solve problems that may be ailing their skin or to create a plan to age gracefully. Dr. Kappius is married to a retired professional cyclist and Colorado native. She enjoys playing tennis, hiking and camping with their two dogs, drawing,

painting, and keeping their goats outof the garden. She serves on the board of Grand Rivers Humane Society and spends her Saturdays volunteering at adoption events. She has lived in Grand Junction for almost three years and is looking forward to joining the Mountain West Dermatology team to continue serving patients of the Grand Valley.
