Gefei Zhu MD

  • Dermatology
  • PeaceHealth Medical Group Provider

Gefei Alex Zhu, MD joined PeaceHealth in September 2020 as a dermatologist. He is board certified in dermatology by the American Board of Dermatology..

His impressive resume includes serving as Chief Resident in the Dept. of Dermatology at Stanford University, where he also earned his medical degree. Prior to his medical studies, Dr. Zhu earned a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry, graduating magna cum laude from Yale University.

Dr. Zhu is committed to delivering high quality, patient-focused care. "I view each individual as a whole person dealing with skin disease and not just as a diagnosis, and am dedicated to identifying a course of treatment that works for them using the principle of shared decision-making. I pay close attention to new and cutting-edge diagnostics and therapies."

One of Dr. Zhu's favorite things about dermatology is how profoundly it can improve his patients' lives. "In dermatology many of our interventions bring about rapid, noticeable improvement for our patients. In addition, I enjoy the process of visual diagnosis and skin surgery for our skin cancer patients."

Dr. Zhu has already authored over 15 peer-reviewed publications in dermatology, focusing mainly on skin cancer and inflammatory skin disease. "I believe that targeted therapies in dermatology hold great promise for the future."

Away from his work Dr. Zhu enjoys outdoor hikes, traveling, board games, and the company of his wonderful Golden Retriever-Cocker Spaniel.
