Pediatric Dermatology

Dermatology of Philadelphia provides compassionate and sensitive pediatric dermatology care.  All of our doctors are board-certified dermatologists who have completed intensive education and training to be able to care for children and adolescents.

Our approach to pediatric dermatology is family-centered.  We partner with parents to develop treatment and support the entire family along with the patient.  We love the joy of seeing children and helping them thrive.

Dermatology of Philadelphia is an academically-oriented group of board-certified dermatologists.  We work closely with our academic partners and trusted colleagues across the city including at top pediatric hospitals to identify and implement optimal treatments.

We are able to facilitate appointments for our pediatric patients that need higher levels of care or  access to clinical trials and prominent specialized pediatric dermatologists.

We also offer telemedicine appointments which has helped us stay connected with many families with demanding schedules, especially for some of our adolescent acne patients on medications like accutane that require frequent monitoring.
