Dr. Hanspaul Makkar has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

Dr. Makkar performed Moh's surgery on my side for squamous cell carcinoma. I was very anxious since this was my first experience with surgery and the outcome would be uncertain. The medical assistant who prepared me for the surgery was amazing, very pleasant and comforting and so gentle with the needle to numb the area. I was extremely impressed with the entire procedure, it was nearly painless! She set the stage for a comforting and caring demeanor and Dr. Makkar reinforced that with the same from the moment he walked in. He informed me every step along the way as he performed the surgery, keeping me calm and comforted. I was so pleased to hear from him personally within the week advising that he "got it all" and then asked "how are you doing?" He was so sincere and I just can't say enough about the positive experience I had with Dr. Makkar and John Dempsey Hospital's Department of Dermatolgy!
By far one of the most intelligent & caring physicians I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He surgically removed an odd and suspicious mole from a very sensitive area on my two year old son. Melanoma was a possibility. Dr. Makkar sent samples of the mole he removed to thought leaders to get an precise diagnosis. He was extremely comforting before and after the surgery. His bedside manner was unbelievable and he personally followed up with telephone calls with such a caring demeanor. His education and training is extremely impressive. My son is now 6 years old and has been told he no longer needs follow up. It was touching to hear my son say after our last visit with Dr. Makkar that he missed him and was sad he wouldn't be seeing him again. Dr. Makkar is the entire package!!
