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.

Dr. Travis was incredibly kind and warm. She made me feel so comfortable before my laser scar removal, and the procedure was surprisingly painless! (dare I say enjoyable). There was no wait time, the office was very clean, and the staff was welcoming and competent. I am looking forward to my next visit with Dr. Travis!

Dr Travis is very thorough. Always on time. Not an alarmist while very caring. I am pleased with her as a doctor

Dr Travis took her time with me, answered all my questions and gave me a whole body exam. Her office was pleasant and her staff were friendly. I would highly recommend her.

I agree that Dr. Travis is a caring derm. She also speaks with patients on the phone, which not all doctors do, and which I appreciate.
