Jennifer Ranario, MD, FAAD

Board-Certified Dermatologist
Fellowship-Trained Mohs Surgeon
Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology

Jennifer Ranario, MD, specializes in Mohs skin cancer surgery and is board certified by the American Board of Dermatology.

Dr. Jennifer Ranario graduated with the highest honors from The University of Texas at Austin. She then earned her Medical Doctorate and MBA from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, where she went on to complete her dermatology residency. She pursued further training in Mohs micrographic surgery as part of a procedural dermatology fellowship at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas.

She is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, Texas Dermatological Society, and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery. Dr. Jennifer Ranario has performed research and case studies on skin cancer and dermatologic surgery, and she has presented her work at numerous local, regional, and national dermatology conferences. Her work has also been published in multiple peer-reviewed medical journals.

She was drawn to dermatology because she knows things on the skin can affect both self-image and quality of life. She became a Mohs surgeon because she enjoys the delicate nature of the process and paying attention to tiny details. With Mohs surgery, she can also see for herself through a microscope that skin cancer is gone, and she finds it rewarding to provide the treatment with the highest cure rate for most skin cancers.

When not in surgery, she and her husband love hanging out on beaches and seeking out foods from other cultures. Her favorite place they’ve traveled to is Koh Chang Island because of the beautiful beaches and brightly flavored food. Dr. Jennifer Ranario also has an interest in international health and has volunteer experiences in Nicaragua, Mexico, and the Philippines. She and her husband recently welcomed their first child, and they are thrilled to be returning to Austin with their dogs Mandu (“dumpling”) and Batman. She enjoys being outdoors by the water and taking in hill country views, and her favorite place in Austin is Mozart’s Coffee. She loves desserts and can’t live without her KitchenAid, which she regularly uses to make cupcakes and cakes. Because of her cautious and soft-spoken nature, many are surprised to learn that she has been skydiving and gets really into video games like Guitar Hero.
