Kelcey Robak, MS, PA-C
Kelcey Robak, MS, PA-C, is a dedicated dermatology Physician Assistant whose passion for skincare comes from having overcome her own skin conditions during adolescence. She is known for her empathy, diligence, and genuine care for others as well as her down-to-earth personality. Learn more about Kelcey below.
Education and Experience
Kelcey Robak, MS, PA-C is a Nebraska native eager to bring her Midwest hospitality to the Hudson Valley community she has grown to love. As a Physician Associate at Luna Dermatology, Kelcey uses her medical expertise and dermatology training to treat patients for a wide range of skin-related concerns.
Kelcey’s interest in Dermatology was sparked while being treated for her own skin conditions during adolescence. That interest grew into a passion as she witnessed numerous family members and friends undergo treatment for conditions ranging from acne to hair loss to skin cancer. During that time, Kelcey learned that almost all people will experience skin health issues at some point in their lives, and decided dermatology would allow her to help the most people. In addition, beyond the physical challenges they present, skin conditions often have an impact on one’s self-image, so having the opportunity to improve her patients’ quality of life is something that keeps Kelcey motivated, excited to work, and dedicated to her profession.
Kelcey earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska, and after graduation gained medical experience working as a Patient Care Technician in the Neurology department at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. She then went on to pursue her Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant studies at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. There, she excelled in her didactic coursework receiving some of the highest scores on her medical exams.
Kelcey completed her clinical rotations in the Hudson Valley focusing on Primary Care, General surgery, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Dermatology. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and is a member of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants, the New York State Society of Physician Assistants, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
In her spare time, Kelcey enjoys playing tennis, chess, and cheering on her Cornhuskers every Saturday in the fall.
