Board Certified. A name you can trust.


Meet Your Doctor:

Dr. Heskel is a first-rate diagnostician who personally examines each patient. There are no PA’s at Heskel Dermatology either, so each of his patients benefit from Dr. Heskel’s experience and diligence when it comes to diagnosing and treating them.

Dr. Heskel has also been doing volunteer work in Haiti for many years. In addition to seeing hundreds of patients, he helped establish full-time walk-in clinics in Cité Soleil and Boacia. Today, these clinics are staffed by Haitian nurses, doctors and dentists, and supplemented by bimonthly weekend clinics staffed by American doctors and nurses. Haiti Clinic has special clinics for hypertension and at-risk pediatrics. There is also a women's clinic which provides birth control, disease prevention, and other types of care. Last year, Haiti Clinic treated over 12,000 patients.
