Dermatologist Barrett Zlotoff, MD


My name is Barrett Zlotoff I’m a pediatric
dermatologist at the University of Virginia. I see mostly children with dermatologic issues
skin problems of all kinds so we see common skin diseases like eczema, psoriasis, worts,
molluscum but we also see some of the more interesting and rare diseases like ichthyosis. We see mastocytosis we see genetic diseases
that are related to the skin. The great part about dermatology is that I
get to look, do a physical exam, make a diagnosis and then help a patient fix the problem. My most satisfying experiences with pediatric
dermatology has been working with vascular anomaly patients they are a group of patients
that have birthmarks that are made out of blood vessels or other vascular structures. One of the great things about UVA is being
here and being able to work with residents students so every day I come in I’m on my
toes we’re learning new stuff we’re reading the latest journals and that’s what gets me
up I love my job I love coming to work and that’s unusual. My style is really a process of learning to
understand patients disease but also more importantly getting to know a family.
