Dr. Lesnik has been awarded the honor of “Top Doctor” in Dermatology, for both his medical and surgical skills, by the National Center For The Study Of Services in Washington, D.C. Dr. Lesnik has had several research papers published in major medical journals and has written for a medical textbook.
Dr. Lesnik attended George Washington University Medical School in Washington, D.C., where he received his M.D. degree. After an additional two years of training in Surgery and Lasers, Dr. Lesnik was awarded a Dermatology Research Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. He then completed his Dermatology Residency and a Fellowship in Plastic Surgery at the Skin and Cancer Hospital of Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.
“The extra work and training were definitely worth it,” states Dr. Lesnik. “By combining knowledge from so many sources, we’re now making advances unheard of evena few years ago.”
Dr. Lesnik is the step-son of Dr. ALbert Kligman (inventor of Retin-A, sunscreens, and many other skin treatments), and the son of Dr. Lorraine Kligman, one of the leading scientists studying skin aging. Dr. Lesnik has dedicated his life to the development and practice of complete skin care.
“I inherited from my parents a special interest in treating people with the problems of aging and sun damaged skin. Working in the Desert is very exciting because these types of skin problems affect many people here and I enjoy helping them.”
