Welcome to the dermatology practice of Jay L. Cohen, M.D. Our commitment is to provide our patients with the highest standard of dermatologic care in a warm and pleasant environment. We value patient loyalty to our practice and continually strive to improve our ability to serve you.

We offer patients a choice of two locations, our office at 464 Hillside Avenue in Needham and our office in Newton on the campus of Newton-Wellesley Hospital.

We offer a full range of dermatologic care, including treatments for disorders of the skin, hair, and nails. We also offer a number of cosmetic procedures including facials, microdermabrasion, and treatment of benign lesions such as seborrheic keratoses and brown (sun)spots. We also have a medical esthetician on our staff who is available for skin care consultations for all skin types.

Our Services:

​Our practice provides dermatologic care to patients of all ages and skin types. We diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions including:

  • Eczema

  • Psoriasis

  • Adult and Adolescent Acne

  • Warts

  • Rashes

  • Skin Cancer

Skin Cancer Prevention
Early detection remains the best method for preventing skin cancer. Therefore, regardless of the reason for your visit, we recommend a comprehensive skin examination at your initial appointment, particularly for those who have had extensive sun exposure or a family history of skin cancer. This is an opportunity for the doctor to check for suspicious moles and early skin cancers, especially on areas of the body that may be difficult for you to examine yourself.

Coordinated Care
Treatment of dermatologic conditions is specifically tailored for each patient. Treatment often involves the use of topical creams, oral medications, or a combination of both. To enhance effectiveness of these treatments and reduce interactions between medications, we believe in the importance of working in concert with our patients' pediatricians, family practitioners, obstetricians and internists. For this reason, we will be happy to coordinate your care with your referring physician.
