We provide effective and compassionate treatment for infants, children, and adolescents with any skin, nail, or hair disorder — ranging from the common to complex — to improve and enhance quality of life.

The expertise parents want for their children: The pediatric dermatologists at Weill Cornell Medicine specialize in treating pediatric patients. They are board certified in pediatric dermatology and have extensive experience working with children from diverse backgrounds and communities. 

Our physicians understand parents’ concern for their infant, child, or adolescent’s sensitive skin, as well as the toll that a skin disorder can have on a young person’s self esteem and confidence. Using the latest medical research, our pediatric dermatologists design effective, individualized treatment plans designed to meet each patient’s specific developmental, psychological, and physical needs.   

By focusing on educating patients and families about skin diseases and health, our pediatric dermatologists improve health, safety, and prevent permanent cosmetic problems.
