The pediatric dermatology division diagnoses, treats and manages a variety of pediatric skin, hair, and nail diseases and conditions in infants and young children, from the most common cases to the rare and complex. We work closely with Hasbro Children’s Hospital-based as well as community pediatricians, and colleagues in pediatric plastic surgery, pediatric surgery, neonatology, otolaryngology, pediatric ophthalmology, genetics, pediatric cardiology, and pediatric imaging and interventional radiology.
We have outpatient pediatric dermatology clinics in downtown Providence at Hasbro and the adjacent Ambulatory Patient Center (APC) as well as at the Warwick Medical Building (across the street from the Warwick Mall).
When you arrive, our front desk staff will check you in. Please have a copy of your insurance card as well as a photo ID. If you have not completed the new patient paperwork prior to arrival, we will have you fill them out prior to check in. If you have completed them, it will speed up your check-in process as we will collect them when you arrive. A medical assistant will help you get settled in your examination room and confirm your information. As we provide services at a teaching hospital, you may be seen by a physician in training prior to seeing the attending physician.
The pediatric dermatology division at Hasbro has one of the region’s most comprehensive programs for the laser treatment of vascular anomalies. Using the most technologically advanced lasers, our experienced team nurses ensures the safest and most comfortable patient experience.
Following a thorough evaluation and diagnosis, we will customize a treatment plan for a variety of conditions including:
- Capillary malformations (port wine stains)
- Telangiectasias and spider angiomas
- Ulcerated hemangiomas
- Residual vascular changes from involuted hemangiomas
