Kate Victoria Viola, MD, MHS, FAAD is a board-certified dermatologist who practices both medical and cosmetic dermatology in patients of all ages. She has a special interest in the treatment of skin cancers, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and alopecia. As a native New Yorker, she completed both her dermatology residency and a dermatopharmacology fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where she served as a chief resident in her final year.

Dr. Viola also received a Master of Health Science Research degree from Yale University School of Medicine while in the prestigious Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars program. She has published research in several academic journals, including Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Archives of Dermatology, Journal of Investigative Dermatology, and British Journal of Dermatology.

Dr. Viola's dermatological approach is patient centric. She focuses on the unique needs of each individual, and her translational medicine and clinical trials background allows her access to the most up-to-date treatments in her field.
