As a board-certified dermatologist in private practice since 1992, I specialize in cosmetic medicine and take pride in a patient group that includes Academy Award winning actors, Upper East Side residents, and others who are looking for the best dermatological care. I consider it a privilege to treat my patients. Like the best relationships, mutual respect and trust lies at the foundation of doctor-patient interactions. I believe in active listening, learning about the whole person and working with them to achieve their goals. A person's appearance is fundamental to his or her sense of well being and self esteem. I continually strive to educate each patient to ensure that their skin feels comfortable and looks its best.
