"I find Dermatology personally gratifying because I come in contact with many people on a daily basis, which I enjoy tremendously," says Dr. Hellman. "It also allows me to utilize the fine motor skills which I developed during my musical training in performing surgical and aesthetic procedures of all kinds. I especially enjoy helping my patients improve their appearance in relatively short periods of time, boosting their self-esteem, and giving them the confidence they need to feel that they can go out and conquer the world. This is the greatest gratification for a physician."
