Diana H. Lee. MD, PhD—one of the very few pediatric dermatology specialists in the tri-state area—leads our division. A well-known expert in her field, Dr. Lee is board-certified in pediatrics, dermatology, and pediatric dermatology. Within our division, children also have access to expert care from the many other specialists throughout CHAM and Montefiore Health System. 

These include pediatric rheumatologists, pediatric geneticists, pediatric hematologist-oncologists, pediatric allergist-immunologists, pediatric surgeons and pediatric radiologists, in addition to others. 

New collaborative services will include a joint genetics-dermatology clinic with pediatric geneticists to address inherited skin diseases such as ichthyoses and blistering disorders. A multi-disciplinary vascular anomalies service involving cardiologists, pediatric radiologists, interventional radiologists, ophthalmologists, oncologists, surgeons and other specialists is also in the works. Treatment of vascular birthmarks with pulsed dye laser and surgical options for certain skin conditions will be offered in conjunction with a procedural dermatologist who has extensive expertise in treating children and adolescents.
