Lisa Travis, MD

Dermatologist, Upper Westside Dermatology


Dr. Lisa Travis is a board-certified dermatologist with a decade of experience making New Yorkers look and feel better in their own skin.

Dr. Travis was selected in 2013 and again in 2014 for the New York Times Magazine’s list of New York “Super Doctors”, which is limited to five percent of the region’s active physicians. This honor is based on a survey of other physicians in the NY area as to whom they would choose for their own medical care.

Dr. Travis came to dermatology from an artistic background, having studied design and architecture as well as science at Cornell University. After completing her Bachelor’s degree, she decided to pursue her medical degree at the State University of New York in Brooklyn. She soon found that dermatology was the perfect medium for her to merge her visual sensibilities with her passion for positively impacting people’s lives.
