WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I have two areas of clinical expertise: cutaneous lymphoma and hair disorders. In the area of cutaneous lymphoma, I have focused my research on clinical trials for new treatments and consensus building to establish standard guidelines for staging, evaluation, and treatment of patients, as well as the methodology used in clinical trials. My patients are invited to participate in my ongoing database, which captures their response to treatments. My goal is to find a cure for these cancers or, barring that, long lasting remissions. In the area of hair disorders, my goal is to help referring physicians diagnose and treat effectively multiple types of hair loss. My consultative practice is now focused on scarring alopecias, including frontal fibrosing alopecia and hair loss in African-American women in which causes are not obvious. My research focuses on collaborative work with multiple centers in the United States to help create knowledge and new treatments.
