We offer the only pediatric-focused dermatology program in the greater Akron area and one of only a few programs in Ohio. We are specially trained to diagnose and treat infants, children and teens with a range of skin, hair and nail conditions - from acne, eczema and warts to more complex genetic skin disorders and vascular malformations.

We have one focus: kids.

We are dedicated to helping you and your child better understand skin ailments and how to treat and cope with them. Among the many conditions we treat are:

  • acne
  • atopic dermatitis (eczema)
  • birthmarks
  • keloid scars
  • melanoma
  • molluscum
  • pot-wine stain (capillary malformation)
  • psoriasis
  • unwanted hair growth (hirsutism)
  • vitiligo 
  • warts


Vascular Anomalies Clinic.

Our vascular anomalies clinic includes pediatric specialists in dermatology, plastic and reconstructive surgery and interventional radiology. Together, we address the complex needs of children with vascular birthmarks, hemangiomas and other vascular malformations.
