About Us

State of the art dermatologist in Hollywood, FL since 1975. Male and female doctors are all board-certified MD dermatologists. We see children and adults for medical, surgical, cosmetic, and laser dermatology. We have special expertise in laser dermatology, and our doctors are assistant professors in dermatology at the University of Miami School of Medicine where they teach dermatology to residents each month. We have a nice staff, nice doctors, and will see you on time. Immediate appointments are often available.
