I’m a dermatologist with a medical degree from Temple University, a master’s degree of public health in epidemiology from George Washington University and board certification from the American Academy of Dermatology. I have a brick-and-mortar office in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey and I currently offer telemedicine-based services in several states across the U.S.
I work a bit differently than most other dermatologists, because I like to get to know my patients so we can build a long-term relationship that benefits their skin as well as their overall wellness. This idea came from an “A-HA moment” when I realized I could better serve my patients by casting a wider net that addressed the connection between their skin and their lives as a whole. In fact, I had started practicing “lifestyle medicine” well before I discovered there was a name for this integrated approach to looking and feeling good both inside and out.
Although dermatology will always be the foundation of my practice, I believe lifestyle and overall wellness help support the health and appearance of the skin, as well as how we feel every day. The other factors I consider and weave into any treatment plan include diet, physical activity, stress management and emotional well-being.
