Dermatology
Horatio Wildman

My goal is to provide outstanding dermatological care to patients of all ages. As all people are unique, I believe that treatment plans for patients should be individualized for optimum results. The best medicine is practiced humanely, ethically, and with expertise. I am deeply committed to providing the highest quality care and believe that does not end when the patient leaves the exam room.

Dr. Wildman received his Bachelor of Science with Honors from Duke University. He graduated from SUNY Stony Brook Medical School, where he earned the prestigious Award for Clinical Excellence. After an internship in Internal Medicine at Georgetown University Hospital, Dr. Wildman completed his dermatology residency at George Washington University Hospital, serving as Chief Resident during his final year. He was recruited to Weill Cornell Medical College in 2006 to expand the medical dermatology service and now serves as the Residency Director for the department.
