Specialties

Dr. Amy S Paller has the following 3 specialties

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

  • Pediatric Dermatology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I have known Dr. Paller since I was about 4 years of age. She has been great. She knows what she is talking about and explains things very well. She has been helping me and my family with my rare skin condition called EB.

I have been seeing Dr. Paller for many years. She has been a knowledgeable and caring professional. I've seen many dermatologists in my life (I'm one of her "big kids") and she by far has been the best. I can't recommend her highly enough.

caring professional

I agree with the other review and had to write about how caring she is. She is at the head of her profession yet down to earth enough to lie on the bed with my son while instructing a resident on the removal of a growth. my son was six and very nervous until his doctor tucked her head next to his to ask him about his game. As his we were also nervous and she was calming and educational. I love her for her wisdom and empathy.
