Leading Ladies 2019: Paula Moskowitz MD, PHD

Dermatologist & Practice Co-Owner, Dermatology Professionals

“I’m so excited to be featured as a Leading Lady, and approaching my 20th year of practicing dermatology in Rhode Island... it just means the world to me,” says Paula Moskowitz. This is a major milestone for Paula, a proud Ocean State resident. She lived in several places – raised in Queens, NY, then moved to Chicago and Boston – but it was Providence that won her over. “I’ve never looked back,” she says.

Much of Paula’s career has been as an instructor. She taught dermatology residents at Roger Williams Medical Center, where she served as director of cosmetic training, and also at Brown University. Later, she brought her expertise to DERMATOLOGY PROFESSIONALS, a practice she started with her professional partners in East Greenwich 10 years ago.

“I have always loved my teaching roles,” says Paula, “first as an assistant professor and now teaching advanced cosmetic procedures to a dermatology fellow at my practice.” It is this level of expertise that distinguishes her from other providers of cosmetic services.

One of the most rewarding aspects of Paula’s job is her relationship with her patients. Over the past two decades, she has served as caregiver for up to three generations of the same family, attending to an astonishing range of dermatological needs, from the cosmetic to the life-saving. The field can be quite intimate; when one patient learned the gender of her anticipated first grandchild, she excitedly texted Paula. Longtime patients have also witnessed Paula’s own evolution, from young professional to expecting mother to the Mom of 15 year old twins.

“In my practice, I have always strived to provide cutting-edge and thoughtful treatments, whether my patient has acne, a rash, skin cancer, or is seeking a cosmetic enhancement,” she says. As technology evolves, she is excited about further expanding her services. “I’m thrilled about new innovations, such as the Pronox system of nitrous oxide, making laser treatments more comfortable, the Profound treatment for skin tightening, and PRP for female and male pattern hair loss. 2019 looks to be a great year at Dermatology Professionals,” Paula says.
