About

Bio

I am a board-certified dermatologist and I am happy to help you with any skin concerns. I graduated from Columbia University college of physicians and surgeons with a MD degree, and from Cornell University with a Ph.D degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
