I am fortunate to have attracted many very loyal patients who, by referring family and friends, helped me grow my practice over the years. It is enormously fulfilling to treat the same people over time and learn about their lives, and I am very grateful that this field enables such long-term relationships. Patients in the Tristate area, and Manhattan in particular, are similarly fortunate to have at their fingertips a wide array of options when choosing a cosmetic or medical dermatologist. One of things I love about practicing medicine is that we physicians are constantly pushing boundaries toward higher standards of patient care and excellence. I believe there is always room for improvement and innovation, and am constantly questioning and refining what is known about skin health, therapies, and cosmetic treatments to promote healthy and graceful aging. In our Fifth Avenue boutique office, we provide all cutting-edge treatments that have been shown to deliver excellent, reliable results. In aiming to address the totality of skin health, I often find that medical and cosmetic issues are strongly intertwined, for example, unwanted redness in a rosacea patient; nail biting as a manifestation of anxiety; the need for scar treatment due to scratching in an itchy patient with undiagnosed diabetes.
