Roberta Palestine, M.D. is the founder and Medical Director of The Dermatology Center. She has been in practice since 1982. Dr. Palestine is a board certified dermatologist, and has been recognized as one of the top doctors in the Washington, D.C. metro area. She received her undergraduate degree from Cornell University and her medical degree with honors from the University of Rochester. Dr. Palestine also attended the world-famous Mayo Clinic for her residency in dermatology.

She believes it is very important in customizing treatment for each individual patient. I find it satisfying to help people optimize their appearance, because when people look better it makes them feel better and therefore enhances their self-esteem and self-confidence.
