Dr. Andrew Para is an assistant professor and faculty member within the Department of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Beth Israel (MSBI). He completed his clinical training in both dermatology and internal medicine at Northwestern University as part of the Combined Medicine-Dermatology Residency Program and is board certified in both specialties.
Dr. Para’s clinical practice is focused on two areas:
1. Complex medical dermatology – this area of clinical dermatology encompasses the care of patients with complex systemic diseases with skin manifestations. Dr. Para has a particular expertise in supportive oncodermatology, which involves the management of cutaneous toxicities of cancer therapies like chemotherapy or radiation. However, his training background in both dermatology and internal medicine has built a foundation to care for a broad array of complex patients and diseases.
2. Culturally-competent care – Dr. Para strives to maintain an inclusive and non-judgmental clinical practice where sexual/gender minorities and patients of all ethnicities and skin types feel safe and comfortable seeking dermatologic care. ALL patients are welcome. Dr. Para has a specific skill set in the context of non-cis-gendered patient care and the skin changes that accompany exogenous hormone therapy.
Beyond the above two areas of emphasis, Dr. Para does practice general dermatology, which involves visits for skin cancer screening, acne, and eczema, among many other reasons. His general focus is primarily on medical and not cosmetic care
