One of only a small handful of physicians in the country board-certified in both dermatology and psychiatry, Dr. Amy Wechsler adds another dimension to dermatology. Using the latest technologies and techniques, she treats a wide range of dermatologic conditions – beginning with a careful evaluation of the patient’s psychological stressors and skincare concerns. Her journey toward clinical dermatology began with an exemplary academic career at Duke University, where she graduated magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa with a B.S. in Psychology. She completed her residency in psychiatry as well as a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Payne Whitney Clinic - New York-Presbyterian Hospital. While at Payne Whitney Clinic, Dr. Wechsler often observed the effects of psychological factors on patients’ outward appearance and dermatologic health. Realizing that this powerful connection was largely unaddressed, she completed a residency in dermatology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. Her training reinforced her conviction that treating skin without addressing psychological factors brings limited success, and she began to develop a breakthrough approach drawing on both medical disciplines.
