Dr. Sewell is a familiar face to many in Idaho Falls having spent his junior and senior high school years here. After serving an LDS mission in South Africa, Botswana, and Lesotho, he attended the University of Utah receiving a Bachelor of Science in Biology in 1999. Leaving Utah and Idaho behind, he attended medical school in our nation’s capital at The George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C. Following graduation in 2003, he stayed at GWU for a one-year internship in internal medicine and then moved on to dermatology residency at Geisinger Medical Center in central Pennsylvania. Upon the conclusion of residency training and obtaining a board certification in 2007, he stayed at Geisinger for another year. He combined a fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Procedural Dermatology. While there, he was also on the general dermatology staff at Geisinger, both seeing patients independently and supervising an evening resident clinic.
In 2008, Dr. Sewell moved to Idaho Falls to begin private practice by joining long-time friend and colleague, Dr. James Willis at High Valley Dermatology. Dr. Sewell has always been concerned about going the extra mile to ensure patients are well cared for and pleased with their experience as his patient.

Dr. Miner is a native of Ammon, Idaho, and is happy to return home to offer care to the great people of Southeast Idaho. After serving a mission in Northern England for the LDS church, he obtained his bachelor of science in zoology from Idaho State University in 2002. He then attended medical school at the University of New England in Maine. Upon completion of medical school in 2006, he was appointed general medical house officer and, later as chief resident, completed his residency in Dermatology in affiliation with Michigan State University in 2010. He enjoyed practicing general and surgical dermatology in Wyoming for 2 years directly after residency. However, a desire to further hone his surgical skills and offer his skin cancer patients the highest level of care prompted Dr. Miner to leave Wyoming for a 1-year fellowship in Mohs micrographic and reconstructive surgery in downtown Chicago with the Northwestern Skin Cancer Institute. He finished this additional training in July 2013 and joined High Valley Dermatology at that time. He is board certified in dermatology since 2011 and practices adult, pediatric, and cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Miner lectures at local and national meetings, is active in community health education, and has publications in multiple peer-reviewed journals. In addition, he continues to share his extensive training in medical dermatology, Mohs micrographic surgery, and cosmetic therapies with his patients as well as rotating students. His care, compassion, and skill are a great addition to High Valley Dermatology.
