Meet Dr. Harris


Ryan Harris, MD grew up in Boise and graduated from Centennial High School in Boise, ID.   After spending many years completing his education, he was very excited to be able to return to his home state to practice medicine. He is passionate about dermatology and is devoted to providing the best care possible for his patients.


Dr. Harris has many interests within dermatology, but is especially skilled in evaluation of moles and diagnosis of melanoma, management of psoriasis and other rashes, surgical treatment of skin cancers, and a full range of cosmetic procedures. He is comfortable seeing children and adults with both simple and complex skin diseases. He has several years experience as an investigator for clinical trials. He was the primary investigator for several of the medications currently on the market such as Otezla, Humira, and Enbrel used to treat psoriasis, and Rinvoq for atopic dermatitis (eczema).

Dr. Harris and his wife have five children. He is an avid sports fan and specifically enjoys college football and basketball. When he isn’t working, he enjoys running, road and mountain biking, swimming, and hiking. He competes in long distance road bike races and triathlons. He is excited to be back in Idaho and looks forward to serving you for all your skin care needs.
