About Me

As a dermatologist, I feel privileged to be able to use my different life experiences—in both the arts and the sciences—to better serve my patients. I’m indebted to my studio art and art history teachers who refined my ability to see and process visual data, and I will never be able to adequately thank the gifted and generous physicians who educated me in internal medicine and dermatology.

My practice interests lie in treating people with psoriasis and eczema, as well as in screening for skin cancer and developing a healthful approach to aging. Above all, I enjoy working closely with people to achieve their skin health goals. 

I have been fortunate enough to practice dermatology in both academic settings and private practice. NYU Langone offers particularly enriching resources to both my patients and me. I try to pay all this forward by doing my utmost to evaluate my patients fully. I examine their skin and overall health, so I can understand and attend to their medical needs entirely.
