Education & Training

After graduating, she went on to complete her premedical training at Wellesley College, where she was on the Dean’s List. Subsequently, she attended the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City and received her MD in 1989. After an internship in internal medicine at New York’s Beth Israel Medical Center, she completed her residency in Dermatology at SUNY Stony Brook, where she was selected as chief resident in dermatology.

Dr. Hellman became board certified in dermatology in 1994. She is currently an associate professor in the Department of Dermatology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center and has authored numerous papers for medical journals on a variety of topics.

Her Philosophy

“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 aesthetic and surgical 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.”

Dr. Hellman has been in private practice in New York City since 1993. She is fluent in English, Hebrew, and Hungarian. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, the Dermatologic Society of Greater New York, and others. She is affiliated with the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York and has been a guest on various radio and TV programs as well as interviewed in a variety of magazines on medical and cosmetic dermatology topics. Moreover, Dr. Hellman has been named a NY Times Super Doctor for nine years running. She accepts most insurance plans (such as Aetna, Cigna, United Healthcare, GHI) as well as Medicare.

Dr. Hellman resides in Manhattan and is the mother of Michael Eliran, a musical prodigy. Michael’s original music can be heard on Spotify under his band’s name, Dolly Spartans.
