About our practice

Comfort and convenience are the hallmarks of Metropolitan Dermatology's offices in Belleville, Clark, Edison, Elizabeth, Jersey City, Kearny, Kenilworth, Mahwah, South Plainfield, Southampton, Newton, Staten Island, Teaneck, Vineland, and West New York. Our group was founded by Dr. Alex Doctoroff, affiliate of the world-renowned Columbia University and New York Presbyterian Hospital. Our well-trained staff provides thorough treatment for the full spectrum of dermatologic services for adult and pediatric patients. From your initial consultation to the moment you leave our doors, we ensure that you receive the most comprehensive dermatological care possible. We provide a wide variety of services in all areas of cosmetic, medical and surgical dermatology and cover Union County, Bergen County, Hudson County, Middlesex County, and the surrounding areas.

Our practice's expertise ranges from MOHS micrographic surgery for the treatment of skin cancer, to allergy testing, to photodynamic therapy for sun damage, pre-cancerous skin lesions, and acne. Dermoscopy (epiluminescent microscopy) is our preferred method of skin cancer detection. This method allows for more accurate detection of melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma, and a decrease in the number of unnecessary biopsies. We specialize in facial rejuvenation and cosmetic procedures.

Our dermatologists and staff are excited to bring the newest and most advanced developments in the treatment of skin, hair, and nail diseases to the patients of Metropolitan Dermatology's 14 locations. Additionally, our offices have used electronic patient medical records since 2004 and offer a secure patient portal as well as the latest health & wellness platform for communications using mobile devices.

We are proud to have bilingual providers as part of our team to best care for you!
