Brad Armstrong is one of our certified physician assistants. Brad completed his undergraduate education at Texas A&M University and continued his education at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL.

While in PA school, he was selected by his peers to represent the program as a student member of the House of Representatives.
Upon graduating, he entered the field of emergency medicine, where he enjoyed the fast-paced environment of the ER. He attributes his eight years of experience in the ER to have provided him with the well-rounded understanding of medicine and the patient experience. Brad switched his area of focus and expertise to dermatology eight years ago. He has practiced medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology in Frisco and enjoys treating patients of all ages. Brad joined Dr. Dharamsi at Legacy Dermatology & Restoration Center in 2018 and looks forward to many successful years to come! Brad has a relaxed, down-to-earth chairside manner and enjoys getting to know his patients. He sees being a health care provider as an honor and privilege, and it shows in the care for his patients.
When he is not at the office, Brad loves spending time with his wife, Amy, and their daughters, Avery and Taylor. Being a sportsman and outdoorsman, he enjoys time at his farm and coaching and watching his kids play sports.
"I'm beyond impressed. First that new patient forms are online in fillable PDF format. Their written office policies are about mutual respect, caring and professionalism and, based on my visit today (my first), they mean it. I was given a choice between seeing the doctor or a PA and opted for a PA (I love PAs and nurse practitioners). At the office I was seen in a timely manner, all office staff were warm yet professional and Brad Armstrong addressed my concerns and gave thorough and understandable answers and recommendations. I'll be praising Legacy Dermatology to everyone I know."
"Such a great experience! I was nervous to make the switch after my previous dermatologist retired, but everyone was so professional and welcoming! Dr Armstrong was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions!"
"This is the first time that I have been to a dermatologist and felt like I was given the attention I deserved rather than being rushed through to the patient. Brad was informative and seemed like he has a genuine interest in helping patients. All of the staff that I interacted with were extremely helpful and friendly. It is comforting to find a place that you are happy to return to."
"Knowledgeable, caring staff. Explanations were thorough and understandable. I was able to see a PA (Brad Armstrong) the day after I called for an appointment (my choice). One of the most pleasant, positive experiences I've had in a physician's office. I'm recommending Legacy Dermatology to my friends."
"Nicole and Brad made me feel very comfortable before and after my outpatient surgery. They answered all my questions, were very courteous and they were both very gentle with the procedure. Thanks for taking good care of me!"
