Can anyone recommend a good derm near Fairfield, CT for annual skin checks?

Many thanks in advance!

My oncologist @ Yale, Dr. Sznol, recommended that I visit Dr. Jonathan Leventhal who is a dermatologist in New Haven (203-789-1249). I have visited him once, he is a very thorough dermatologist.

Hi Susan,

Which group are you with? I saw Marimeg Clairwood in the Hartford group (before I started seeing Dr Sznol at Smilow) and she was very nice, though I have an unknown primary and my visit was more or less to confirm that.

I've also heard of good things about Dr Leventhal, its who I would have gone to see had I not already been seen by Dr Clairwood.

I recently moved to the area from MA and am looking for a good derm nearby. There are many who are more cosmetically focused I find. Thanks again!
