|Jessica Krant, M.D., MPH is a board-certified cosmetic, laser, surgical, and medical dermatologist, Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and American College of Mohs Surgery as well as being certified in Lifestyle Medicine. A proud recipient of Castle Connolly and coveted New York Magazine Top Doctor status for many years, Dr. Krant also frequents the New York SuperDoctors listings and was named a Westchester County Top Doctor as well as receiving the Best of Manhattan Award in Dermatology. After graduating from Harvard College magna cum laude and going on to Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons where she received both her M.D. (with Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honors Society recognition) and her Master’s Degree in Public Health, Dr. Krant went on to complete internship at Lenox Hill Hospital, dermatology residency at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a formal American College of Mohs Surgery fellowship.|
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.
In addition to private practice, Dr. Krant has also enjoyed teaching dermatology residents for the past 17 years as Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, where she earned the Dermatology Teaching Award.
Outside the clinical setting, Dr. Krant is highly involved in public health education, having served as the only dermatologist on Consumer Reports’ Medical Advisory Board and as a spokesperson for the Skin Cancer Foundation, as well as through her work as Delegate to the American Medical Association representing Dermatologic Surgeons and their patients nationwide. At the AMA, Dr. Krant proudly serves on the Surgical Caucus Executive Committee, working with physicians nationwide to protect quality health care access for patients.
Dr. Krant is Secretary of the Board of the New York County Medical Society and a former member of the Board of the Westchester County Medical Society, the AAD’s Congressional Policy and State Policy Committees, and the Professional Conduct Committee of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, where she personally updated the organization’s ethics guidelines for dermatologists nationwide. She regularly travels to Albany and Washington to speak to legislators about health reform and protection of access to safe, quality care.
In recent years, in addition to enjoying a robust practice in laser, cosmetic, and medical dermatology, Dr. Krant has been studying integrative dermatology as well as nutrition and lifestyle practices and how they impact our whole well-being from our inside parts to our skin in terms of disease, health, and anti-aging. In pursuit of this knowledge, Dr. Krant was certified by the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine and enjoys serving on the Medical Advisory Board of Plant Powered Metro New York.
But above all, Dr. Krant is most proud of being a caring, comprehensive physician who takes the time to listen and sends her patients home with a smile.
