U.S. News Selects 8 Boston-area Dermatologists as Top Doctors

Patients seeking a dermatologist in the Boston area now have a way to make the decision easier: 8 doctors at SkinCare Physicians, a Chestnut Hill dermatology center, have been named to the U.S. News 2011 Top Doctors directory.

Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts (November 2011) – The decision-making process is now easier for people seeking a highly qualified dermatologist in the Boston area. SkinCare Physicians ( has 8 doctors at its center who were chosen for the U.S. News Top Doctors guide for 2011. This prestigious honor was awarded to Dr. Kenneth Arndt, Dr. Jeffrey Dover, Dr. Katrinka Heher, Dr. Michael Kaminer, Dr. Kay Shou-Mei Kane, Dr. Thomas Rohrer, Dr. Jeffrey Sobell and Dr. Robin Travers.

“We’re delighted to learn about this,” Dr. Arndt says. “I’m very proud of the fact that we have become internationally recognized innovators and leaders in cosmetic and laser surgery and medical aesthetics, as well as general dermatology. And now, this honor will help future patients learn about our state-of-the-art center and our multiple specializations.”

To create the Top Doctors list, U.S. News teamed up with Castle Connolly, a New York City company that has compiled and published Top Doctor guides for more than 2 decades. Castle’s compilations are based on other doctors’ nominations, which are then reviewed by a physician-led research team. The goal is to assist consumers in locating doctors who are best qualified to meet their needs in various specialties.

“Because of the intensive reviews, screening and research, and the fact that these nominations come from other physicians, it’s truly significant to be included in the U.S. News list,” Dr. Dover says. “It’s important because it makes the process of seeking a doctor who specializes in a certain area much easier for the consumer.”

Using the online search form, you can look for a doctor based on your location (even narrowing it down by the number of miles you’re willing to drive) and either the type of specialist, the name of the doctor or the name of the hospital. In addition, you can expand your search to view all specialists or all locations.

For example, suppose you want one of the best dermatologists in the Boston area for BOTOX® Cosmetic. By using this online screening, you can easily locate SkinCare Physicians and recognize how qualified they are in this procedure.

Dr. Dover is one of the dermatologists at the center who specializes in cosmetic dermatology. He is the editor of a book series called Procedures in Cosmetic Dermatology, and one of the books in that series is titled BOTOX.

“For consumers, the advantage of selecting our center is that we have such a wide range of specializations among us,” Dr. Travers says. “Whether they’re seeking a dermatologist who specializes in medical dermatology, such as acne treatments, or facial rejuvenation, such as BOTOX in the Boston area, I’m confident that we can help them.”
