About Me

Biographical Statement

I received my undergraduate degree in biopsychology from Cornell University and then my medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania. I moved to Michigan in 2013 where I completed a dermatology residency at Henry Ford Hospital. After pursuing additional subspecialty fellowship training in dermatopathology at Thomas Jefferson University, I returned to Henry Ford as a full time senior staff member in 2017.

At my Farmington Road (West Bloomfield) office, I practice general medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. 

At my New Center One (Detroit) and Cancer Pavilion (Detroit) offices, I have specialty clinics focused on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with skin lymphomas and other rare complex-medical dermatological conditions requiring second opinions.  

Half of my time is devoted to dermatopathology, in which I read and interpret skin biopsy slides. I use my sub-specialty training in dermatopathology to deliver the highest level of personalized dermatological care for my patients. I am also involved with the Henry Ford Multidisciplinary Cutaneous Oncology Tumor Board and the Cutaneous Lymphoma Tumor Board in which I regularly meet with other medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgical oncologists to discuss and plan out treatment for patients with rare and high-risk skin cancers.

I welcome consults for interpretation of difficult biopsy slides as second opinions. These can be sent to:
