leading cosmetic dermatology provider in Boston-Wellesley

I love having Dr. Weinfeld as my dermatologist – she cares, she's interested, and her treatments are effective. It's easy to talk to her – like telling your sensitive issues to a caring friend.

I went to three dermatologists with no results. Here I felt Dr. Weinfeld was at last serious about my problem – she has gone above and beyond all other help I had before and has solved my problem by not giving up until she was satisfied.

In Dr. Weinfeld's Own Words

Boston dermatologist Dr. Weinfeld

I love working with each patient to figure out which treatments are most effective for that individual's skin. From babies to teenagers to adults, each person has unique skin and a different outlook. I examine each patient carefully, and I listen to each patient to understand their medical concerns and underlying worries. No problem is too overwhelming, and no problem is too trivial. Seeing a doctor is all about developing a relationship with someone you trust... Helping someone live a longer and healthier life is the ultimate reward.
