NDDA Proudly Introduces: Dr. Rachel Gordon
- Posted on: May 28 2016
Please join NDDA in welcoming our newest addition to the physician team! Dr. Rachel Gordon is now seeing NDDA patients for general, pediatric, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Gordon is a board-certified dermatologist and graduate of Ohio State University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude before attending the West Virginia University School of Medicine and then the University of Pittsburgh where she completed a residency in internal medicine.
Before completing her dermatology residency at the University of Texas at Houston, where she spent her last year as Chief Resident, Dr. Gordon devoted several years to dermatology research. Dr Gordon enjoys treating all skin conditions and also brings with her a special enthusiasm for solving psoriasis problems.
“Psoriasis is a very common condition. It can cause a lot of physical and emotional pain and discomfort, and it can seriously affect day-to-day life and general well-being for those who live with it. It’s exciting that there is so much research being done in this area leading to more effective, safe treatment options.”
Dr. Gordon believes that there is ‘more than meets the eye’ when it comes to treating skin: “Clear skin is just the tip of the iceberg- what’s truly noteworthy is the transformation in the person underneath,” she said. “When someone is freed of something that has been weighing so heavily on them, it creates a positive change in nearly everything they do – it’s like they have a new lease on life. Seeing and hearing that change in patients is hands-down, the absolute best part about being a dermatologist and the number one reason why I love what I do.”
