Lindsay Ackerman, MD, founded Medical Dermatology Specialists (MDS) in the fall of 2008. Margaret Kessler, MD, joined the practice in September 2009. In 2018, Medical Dermatology Specialists Phoenix joined U.S. Dermatology Partners. As specialists in dermatology, our Phoenix dermatology practice is focused on providing medical dermatology services. This means we see pediatric and adult patients with conditions ranging from mild inflammatory or infectious diseases to autoimmune diseases and blistering disorders. Our Phoenix dermatologists provide procedural dermatology (skin surgery) services for the treatment of benign and malignant medical conditions, as well as for restorative aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels, chemodenervation, and facial sculpting. We are specialists in dermatology & proud to offer our patients the convenience of Mohs surgery for skin cancer removal with our fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon, Nathalie Zeitouni, MD.
Whether you have a severe skin disease that requires hospitalization or is simply looking for an expert Phoenix dermatologist to enhance your appearance, our goal is to help you feel well and more confident in your skin. From the minute you walk in the door to the time you leave, our staff works collaboratively to make you feel comfortable.
We are passionate about making patients feel better so that you can enjoy an enhanced quality of life. To do this, we make sure to listen to each patient, then provide treatments and education in a way that is honest, respectful and compassionate. In an increased effort to flatten the curve and keep both the patients and health care workers safe, we now offer online dermatology visits for our Phoenix patients.
When you visit our Phoenix dermatology office, you’ll notice that we not only care about our patients’ healthy skin, but we also care about the environment in which we all live. The MDS office was created with environmentally friendly materials including cork flooring and recycled glass countertops. It was vision brought to life by Dr. Lindsay Ackerman and Wendy Ackerman of Ackerman Art & Design.
The board-certified specialists at MDS see patients at MDS’ Phoenix office, as well as at Banner – University Medical Center Phoenix and St. Joseph’s Hospital for acutely ill or hospitalized patients.
