Dr. Vinh Chung has been named one of the Top Doctors every year since 2011. He founded Vanguard Skin Specialists in 2009 as a solo physician, committing to taking care of patients like family. Vanguard has grown as others have joined to pursue Vanguard’s mission to make a positive impact on patients, the community, and the world. 

Dr. Chung and his colleagues at Vanguard Skin Specialists believe medicine is a calling, and this drives everything they do. From opening offices in underserved communities, to serving in developing countries, to donating all retail aesthetic skincare profits to charity, to simply giving patients their personal cell phone numbers, Vanguard believes in healing with impact.

Dr. Chung shares, “I believe everyone wants a higher calling in life. We live out our mission at Vanguard, and that has attracted a different breed of medical professionals. We pursue a higher purpose, and when you’re motivated by something bigger and more significant than yourself, your patients notice.”

Dr. Vinh Chung specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. He graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, and then he completed his dermatology residency and Mohs fellowship at Emory. Dr. Chung was also a Rotary Scholar at the University of Edinburgh, where he earned a master of theology and a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Sydney where he earned a master of pharmaceutical sciences. His best-selling memoir, Where the Wind Leads, is available on Amazon and everywhere books and ebooks are sold.

Vanguard Skin Specialists practices medicine as a team sport and exemplifies power in community. Vanguard has nine locations including Colorado Springs (Briargate, Broadmoor, Northgate), Cañon City, Castle Rock, La Junta, Parker, Pueblo, and Woodland Park. The team covers dermatology, dermatopathology, Mohs surgery, plastic surgery, and aesthetic medicine. Together, the Vanguard team changes the world for the better—one patient at a time.
