Deborah, age 40s, Medway, MA

Several years ago I first saw Dr. Wolpowitz for a baseline examination for any potential skin problems. It was one of the wisest things I ever did. I was relieved to know that there were no immediate problems. More importantly, subsequent annual exams revealed some minor and treatable pre-cancerous basal cells. Dr. Wolpowitz’s expertise, attention to detail, and prompt action allowed [my] problems to be successfully treated .... [he] is clearly an expert physician and his friendly and highly professional manner in his interactions with me are greatly appreciated. I highly recommend him ago anyone who requires dermatological care.

In Dr.Wolpowitz’ Own Words

Dr. WolpolwitzMy passion is to improve people’s lives through excellent, patient–oriented skin care. As a dermatologist, I provide compassionate care by listening to and getting to know patients and their families. Whether a skin condition is simple or complicated, I understand that each patient will have skin needs specific to him or her. I strive to understand these needs and how they relate to the patient’s overall health. As a dermatopathologist, I understand that behind each specimen on a glass slide is a patient in need of my best effort and my absolute attention to detail to guide their treatment. As a physician at Dermatology and Skin Care Associates, I feel truly privileged to use these skills to connect with patients and help them lead healthier and higher quality lives.
