Wonderlich Dermatology

Medical Practice Opens in Fairbanks


In 2009, Dr. Kimberly Wonderlich began her career in Fairbanks by opening the very first dermatology clinic within the Bassett Army Community Hospital on Fort Wainwright. After retiring from the military, she desired to continue offering dermatological services to the Fairbanks community. While she already had top of the line medical training and years of experience under her belt, she had never owned and operated a private clinic, which ultimately directed her to seek guidance from the Alaska Small Business Development Center in Fairbanks.

Alexis helped her quickly navigate through the financial and insurance hurdles, allowing Dr. Wonderlich to quickly secure a loan and the necessary insurance for her new business. The two continued to work together on branding and marketing strategies and after a few short months, Wonderlich Dermatology was officially accepting patients.

Dr. Wonderlich stated that she received, “Outstanding help. [Alexis] solved huge problems that directly impacted the start date for my business, and moved the timeline for startup by 2-3 weeks earlier as a result.”

Wonderlich Dermatology is happily accepting new patients at their beautiful office and offering the highest level of personal doctor-patient care in addition to top-of-the-line laser therapy.
