Pediatric Dermatology Services
At NYU Langone, our pediatric dermatologists provide expert and compassionate care for children of all ages. Our pediatric dermatology team treats children in our outpatient offices and through Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, which allows for seamless coordination among parents, patients, and physicians.
As part of one of the oldest pediatric dermatology practices in the country, our doctors have extensive experience evaluating and treating all skin conditions, as well as hair and nail disorders. Our doctors routinely treat common disorders such as eczema and acne, as well as uncommon birthmarks and rare genetic or inflammatory skin disorders. Our experience allows us to bring advances in the field to the bedside to provide the most up-to-date approach to caring for your child.
NYU Langone’s pediatric dermatologists are deeply committed to creating a nurturing and educational environment for children and their families. We strive to understand your child’s skin condition within the context of their overall health, happiness, and wellbeing. We also pride ourselves in taking the time to educate families about their child’s skin condition.
Our doctors are recognized leaders in their fields, routinely lecturing at local, national, and international dermatologic meetings. They are also active members in the American Academy of Dermatology and the Society for Pediatric Dermatology.
