Bio

Dr. H.L. Greenberg founded Las Vegas Dermatology in November 2007 with the philosophy of providing patients with a “Healthier and More Beautiful Life”. Las Vegas Dermatology offers the latest techniques and services to improve skin texture, volume, and color- some of the techniques used to do so include laser hair removal, laser blood vessel destruction, fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, laser tattoo removal, aesthetician services and product sales. Dr. Greenberg graduated college with distinction from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and from medical school at Wayne State University School of Medicine in downtown Detroit. After which, Dr. Greenberg spent three years as an Internal Medicine resident at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC where he became an Internist, and his interest in dermatology blossomed. To pursue his interest in dermatology, Dr. Greenberg completed a dermatology research fellowship at the University of Wisconsin, followed by his first year of dermatology residency training in Madison. Later, Dr. Greenberg transferred to Scott White of the Texas A M University Health System where he served as the Chief Dermatology Resident and gained specialized experience in Mohs micrographic surgery. Dr. Greenberg has received multiple awards for his speaking at dermatology conferences. He also serves as Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at the University of Nevada School of Medicine where he teaches medical residents and advises medical students interested in dermatology. Additionally, he has written multiple journal articles and book chapters on different aspects of dermatology throughout his career including the topics of: lasers in the treatment of scars and striae, cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma, and the use of imiquimod in the treatment of basal cell skin cancers. Dr. Greenberg is passionate about dermatology, and routinely volunteers his time to educate the Las Vegas community about the dangers of skin cancer and the importance of exceptional care of the skin. On a personal note, Dr. Greenberg enjoys running, travelling and trying all the different restaurants in Las Vegas and beyond.
