Dr. Peck was born and raised in Selah, WA and is a proud graduate of the University of Washington. Following several years on the east coast for graduate school at Georgetown and medical school, residency and fellowship at Drexel University, Dr. Peck moved to the Tri-Cities in 2013. He is happy to call the Yakima Valley home once again.

Dr. Peck chose to specialize in Dermatology because he enjoys the variety and challenge of treating the diverse array of skin diseases and cancers, while collaborating with his patients to improve their skin health. He believes in compassionate, patient-focused medical care. To provide balanced, comprehensive dermatological care, Dr. Peck pursued a Dermatopatholgy fellowship to better understand dermatological diseases from the microscopic level to their clinical presentation. Dr. Peck also has specialized in Mohs Micrographic and Reconstructive surgery for cases where non-surgical interventions are not appropriate.

Dr. Peck’s favorite pastimes are fishing, golf, and the football season. He fine tunes his surgical skills by tying his own flyfishing flies. With his wife and two sons, Dr. Peck enjoys the outdoors, participating in multiple youth sports, and exploring new places. Dr. Peck also enjoys supporting medical training by mentoring medical residents in the clinic during their dermatology rotations.
