Dr. Sandra Lee, also known as Dr. Pimple Popper, is a dermatologist from Upland, California, and the star of TLC’s Dr. Pimple Popper.
With all the time she spends on our television screens, fans across the country have grown more and more curious about her personal life. Who is Dr. Jeffrey Rebish, her husband? Where do they live? What does he think of her profession?
According to his website on Skin: Physicians & Surgeons, Rebish is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. He is the other half of Skin Physicians and Surgeons, the couple’s dermatology practice.
Raised in Westchester County, he graduated from Dartmouth College.
Together, he and Lee live in Upland, California with their two young boys, who are 12 and 13. In an interview with 8 Asians, Dr. Lee stated that she attended UCLA, where she received her BS in Biology.
One thing we know about Dr. Rebish is that he keeps a low profile and does his best to stay out of the spotlight, despite the fact that his wife is a reality TV star. In March 2015, Dr. Sandra Lee uploaded a photo of her and her husband, and captioned it, “Getting my husband to take a photo with me is like trying to pop out a scarred cyst. Difficult!!”
Lee tells Distractify of her relationship with her husband, “He’s the brains and I’m the personality… We complement each other well, we have different things we do at the office.”
She continues, “The big thing, I think for everyone who works with their husband or a family member is the hierarchy,” Dr. Pimple Popper says. “We would never be able to work together if I worked for him or if he worked for me. The fact that we work alongside each other [is key], because we know we have each other’s best interest at heart.”
And what do we know about Dr. Sandra Lee, herself? The dermatologist started an Instagram in 2015 to give people a window into her day-to-day life. She then proceeded to create thousands of videos of her work– most of which, these days at least, is popping pimples.
Today, Lee has over 3.1 million Youtube subscribers, 2.6 million Instagram followers, and 2 million Facebook fans. She is quoted as saying, “There’s a great sense of satisfaction to watch pressure being built up and released, and to watch the body being cleansed or cleaned.”
Lee continues, “People love to learn about their skin, why these growths happen, how they are removed… I hear so often from people about how they watch my videos and then aspire to become dermatologists or other skincare specialists.”
Lee’s followers, who she calls popaholics, inspired her to create her two other brands: SLMD Skincare, and The Pretty Pimple.
Tonight, a new season of Dr. Pimple Popper will air on TLC at 9pm ET/PT. Be sure to tune in for season 2.
