Lycia Scott-Thornburg, MD


I was born and raised in Waukesha, Wisconsin.  I received my Bachelor of Science from the University of Wyoming.  I attended medical school at the Medical College of Wisconsin.  I completed my residency at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.  I joined The Skin Institute at the Rapid City Medical Center in 2004.

I specialize in general and pediatric dermatology, surgical dermatology, laser surgery and fillers including Botox and Juvederm.  I also focus on early detection of skin cancers.

My personal care philosophy and an adaptation of one of my favorite quotes by Maya Angelou is, “At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.”  I find it important to go above and beyond for patients.  That includes investigating the best treatment options available, as well as educating patients on the tools necessary to achieve and maintain healthy skin.  At the end of the day, I want to make my patients feel like red carpet guests.
