My name is Howard Steinman and I am private practice dermatologist in Chula Vista, California. I’m also on the faculty at the University Of California, San Diego. I did my residency at both at the University of California, San Diego and in London at St. John’s Hospital for diseases of the skin and then I did one extra year of training and skin cancer surgery, Moe’s surgery, and cosmetic surgery at the University of Illinois in Chicago. I then taught full-time at the University of California, San Diego and then went into the private practice in Chula Vista in 1989. My practice is approximately half general dermatology, about 30% to 40% cosmetic dermatology and then skin cancer with Moe’s surgeries as the other remaining 10%. I see people of all ages. I see a lot of women both with medical dermatology concerns and cosmetic concerns and I try to treat them individually using the safest, least expensive, and most effective treatment options available.
