Daniel Belkin, M.D., is a board-certified dermatologist who is fellowship-trained in cosmetic dermatology, laser surgery, and Mohs micrographic surgery. He is a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at New York University. 

After graduating magna cum laude from Amherst College, he received his medical degree from Weill Cornell Medical College. As part of his training, he did a research fellowship at the Rockefeller University where he studied non-melanoma skin cancer. He graduated with both honors in service as well as honors in research, and he received multiple awards including the Dean’s Research Award. He subsequently trained in dermatology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where he helped create the educational program in dermatologic surgery. He also received extensive training in medical, surgical, and pediatric dermatology at the Los Angeles County Medical Center, Keck Hospital of USC, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. He went on to complete a prestigious fellowship in Mohs micrographic surgery and reconstructive surgery, laser surgery, and cosmetic dermatology under the direction of Roy G. Geronemus, M.D. at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York.  

Every dermatologist has access to the same products and treatments, but it takes a true artist, with skill and empathy, to create beautiful, natural-looking results.

He has authored several textbook chapters on dermatologic surgery and multiple original articles, which have appeared in journals such as the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, JAMA Dermatology, and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Subjects include high risk skin cancer, lasers for disorders of pigmentation, laser resurfacing, and aesthetic treatments for men.  He is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, and he is a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American College of Mohs Surgery.
