Dr. Lindsey Hunter-Ellul received her undergraduate degree with Honors at The University of Texas at Austin, with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and minor in Biology. She then attended The University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston for medical school. Dr. Hunter-Ellul went on to complete her Internal Medicine Internship and Dermatology Residency at UTMB. Always looking to contribute to her profession, Dr. Hunter-Ellul has served on several committees for the American Academy of Dermatology, Texas Dermatological Society, and was the Physician Editor for the AAD Directions in Residency Newsletter. Dr. Hunter-Ellul has worked as a dermatologist in private practice in Houston, Texas Clear Lake area, since 2015. She is also a clinical assistant professor of dermatology with the University of Texas Medical Branch, training and mentoring medical students.

Dr. Hunter-Ellul has been interested in the field of dermatology almost all of her life. Her family has been affected by skin cancer, and she pursued a job at her own dermatologist’s office in high school. She was hired immediately, and has been focused on research and patient care ever since. Dr. Hunter-Ellul enjoys working with communities to promote sun protection and skin cancer awareness by volunteering at health fairs, participating in Miles for Melanoma walks, and providing skin cancer screenings.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to educate and treat patients for their skin conditions, and helping them cope with the emotional component of chronic skin disease,” says Dr. Hunter-Ellul. “I especially enjoy when we find a treatment plan that best manages or alleviates their condition so their skin concerns can take a back seat in their everyday lives.” She is especially interested in treating skin cancer, psoriasis, acne, aging skin and hair loss.

Dr. Hunter-Ellul and her husband have three young children, and they enjoy photography as a shared hobby.

5 Stars  Excellent My husband has a type of psoriasis. He has seen several other doctors and countless medications. Dr. Hunter is the only one that wanted to try something to get it under control not just give another cream and send us on our way. She is so sweet and listens to all your questions and concerns. She is the only dermatologist for us. –
