Lancaster General Hospital, Lancaster, PA http://www.lancastergeneral.org/ is one of the "Top 100" hospitals in the country. It is also a teaching hospital.
The LGH "empire" of hospital and affiliated branches and coordinating services, is a unique company. I have been saying, during the years we have been using these facilities, that it is now "enjoyable" to go to see the Doctor.
We live in Rising Sun, MD http://www.city-data.com/city/Rising-Sun-Maryland.html current population about 2000 people. We even have two traffic lights, four banks, two Doctors and one McDonald's, and have lived here since 1972.
I realize you wish to stay in CA, but I would encourage you to investigate the Lancaster County, PA/Cecil County, MD area. We are mid-point between NY and DC, along the I-95 corridor. The area between Rising Sun, MD and Lancaster, PA, 35 miles apart, is rich in atmosphere, relaxing way of life, all the resources you need and plenty of opportunity to explore the Dermatology opportunities. We have not only Lancaster General Hospital, Lancaster, PA, but Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA, http://www.hersheys.com/discover/milton/medical_center.asp
and also Christiana, DE Hospital http://www.christianacare.org/body.cfm?id=278 about 30 miles east of Rising Sun.
We are "in the country" with city resources just a short distance away. We have warm summers, 80 to 90 degrees, usually tops, snow in the winter 10 to 30 degrees usually. This would be a great place to "start over!"
Paying me is fine with me. I understand your desire to stay closer "home."
In the Just Answer system, it is possible to "pay" for more than one answer.
I wish you well in your search for a "start-over" home. We have several in our circle of friends who have survived divorce. I have some understanding of the "scars" left from the experience.

Have you considered Monterey - or Carmel? Beautiful - San Diego, or Morro Bay, near San Simeon (Hearst Castle)?
