In Dr. Baden's Own Words

Boston dermatologist Dr. Baden

"One could say that Dermatology is in my blood because I am a second generation Dermatologist, following in my father’s footsteps. I inherited his love not only of medicine, but also of taking care of patients with compassion and understanding. My first-class training in Dermatology has prepared me to manage skin diseases from simple to complex. With more than 25 years of practice, I bring a great deal of experience and depth to caring for my patients. I look forward to partnering with you to address your concerns."
