Dr. Krishnamurthy's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Krishnamurthy "Dr. Krishnamurthy graduated from the University of Missouri with dual degrees in Biochemistry and Medicinal Chemistry, and received his medical degree from Nova Southeastern University. After his internship at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, Dr. Krishnamurthy completed his dermatology training at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York City, where he served as Chief Resident. Dr. Krishnamurthy was Associate Professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, where he served as Chief of Dermatology for Jacobi Medical Center, the largest public hospital in New York City, and created a cosmetic and laser dermatology program at Montefiore Medical Center, serving as its Director. Devoted to education, he trained residents daily, and was awarded "Teacher of the Year" in 2014. Dr. Krishnamurthy's commitment to leadership and research has been recognized by the Kenneth Burnell Research Scholarship, Intendis Research Award, Allergan Research Grant, and the New York Academy of Medicine. Paralleling his academic pursuits, Dr. Krishnamurthy was the recipient of the 2011 Academic Dermatology Leadership Program and the 2012 Editorial Mentorship program, both granted by the American Academy of Dermatology, and has been elected to serve as President of the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology in 2017. In addition, he serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, has published in prestigious journals and tests, including the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, and Dermatologic Surgery, and co-authored the textbook "Emergencies in Dermatology". Given his exposure to the varied culture, ethnicity, skin-types, and demographics in New York City, Dr. Krishnamurthy is an expert in complex medical dermatology, especially psoriasis, auto-immune diseases (lupus), and phototherapy, as well as dermatologic surgery, nail surgery, earlobe repair, and cosmetic/injectable/laser dermatology. He is often called upon as a media expert, contributing to The New York Times, The L.A. Times, Washington Post, WebMD, CBS News, Yahoo News, Good Housekeeping, Weather.com, and SiriusXM Radio. In 2015, he relocated to Greater Jacksonville to serve as Program Director of a new dermatology residency training program and joined Park Avenue Dermatology, PA."

I travel to see this doctor. If it weren't for him, I would find another practice. He cares about the patient. If there is a problem ... administrative or cost barrier ... he finds a solution. He knows his specialty. And he understands what is important to patients. A fantastic doctor.
