Ryan B. Turner, M.D. is a board certified dermatologist in New York City who practices general dermatology and has advanced training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery, laser surgery, and light therapies. His clinical interests include skin cancer surgery and cosmetic treatments that enhance and rejuvenate aging skin. He has extensive training in laser resurfacing treatments which reduce photodamage, wrinkles, and stimulate new collagen growth. His research interests vary from the treatment and management of skin cancers to the successful placement of injectable dermal fillers. He graduated summa cum laude and valedictorian of the University of Maryland Baltimore County. He received his Doctor of Medicine from Harvard Medical School and was honored with the Henry Asbury Christian Award for his research accomplishments at graduation. He completed his internship in medicine and his dermatology residency at the Harvard affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Massachusetts General Hospital, respectively. He has also completed an ACGME accredited fellowship in Procedural Dermatology at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York.
