About Us

Dr. Fuad S. Farah, the senior dermatologist, established the practice in the early 1980s and feels especially fortunate that he continues to mentor his son and daughter. With our mother Mona and Michelle Farah PhD (Dr. Ramsay’s wife) managing the office, ours is truly a family practice. We recognize that you have entrusted our doctors with the health of your skin and so in our practice you will only see a doctor for your medical care; we are committed to providing you with the best of our knowledge, education, dedication, compassion and professionalism. Whether you would like to improve your skin’s appearance or are seeking an effective treatment for a particular skin condition, you are in good hands with us.

In addition to our many years of experience (collectively 85 “doctor years” of dermatology) we provide expert and advanced knowledge in general adult and pediatric dermatology, integrative dermatology, dermatopathology, dermatologic surgery and MOHS surgery, photodynamic therapy and cosmetic dermatology and the latest in hair regrowth techniques. In our practice the professional opinions of both highly trained dermatologists are readily available; brother and sister consult with one another whenever necessary. We have a genuine sense of caring and respect for the patient, and give each patient the full time and attention that he/she deserves - our family-run practice is one where the patient truly feels at home.

Mrs. Farah and Michelle Farah PhD, our office managers, oversee the day-to-day running of the Practice, ensuring an efficient and successful operation. Our staff is highly trained, skilled, knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. Every one of them will do their best to make your experience as pleasant as possible. With multiple office locations in Upstate New York, you’ll be sure to find an office near you. We divide our time between our private practice and the Upstate Medical  University clinics where we hold academic positions and teach medical students and residents. Altogether, we feel that these diverse venues allow us to best serve our community. This is something we have been very passionate about for over thirty five years in Syracuse. On a final note, we bring to our work enthusiasm, energy, technical and diagnostic skill, and a tradition of compassion and kindness that has always been a part of our ethos.
