Hello! I'm Dr. Becca Joy Chibnall.
I am a wife, a mom of three children, a board certified dermatologist, and an organic vegetable and fruit gardener/suburban farmer (in that order). I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV, but I call Webster Groves, MO home now.
I graduated with honors from Washington University in St. Louis (Wash U) in 2007 with a BA in biology and religious studies. I married my wonderful husband in 2008 and then started medical school at Keck School of Medicine - USC in East Los Angeles, CA. I graduated from Keck in 2012 with highest distinction (the medical school equivalent of Summa Cum Laude). From there, I completed an internship in general surgery at St. Louis University Hospital and finished my training with dermatology residency at Barnes Jewish Hospital/Washington University School of Medicine in 2016. I remained on faculty at Wash U until December 2019. There, I built upon my dermatology foundation and further developed my expertise. In 2020, I joined Meramec Dermatology - Arnold, and in 2022 I started at Meramec Dermatology - Sunset Hills.
Early on in my practice I became an expert in vulvovaginal dermatology. I am no longer practicing this type of dermatology in order to give more time to my family and my general dermatology practice. I do have great resources in the St. Louis area for patient's seeking vulvovaginal care. I highly recommend Dr. Holly Steiner in Shiloh, IL,
My care philosophy is best summarized by Dr. Francis W. Peabody's words:
"Time, sympathy and understanding must be lavishly dispensed, but the reward is to be found in that personal bond which forms the greatest satisfaction of the practice of medicine. One of the essential qualities of the clinician is interest in humanity, for the secret of the care of the patient is in caring for the patient."
