Alan Dattner writes, “I’ve written the first chapter ever on complementary and alternative medicine in dermatology in the seventh edition of the dermatology textbook, Fitzpatrick’s Dermatology in General Medicine. I’m one of the first dermatologists to work in the field of holistic dermatology, integrating nutritional, herbal, energetic, mind-body, and other alternative approaches with cutting-edge science in the practice of dermatology. I got started studying cellular immune recognition during a summer while at the U of R. I have been involved since, including three years as a visiting scientist at the dermatology branch at the National Institutes of Health. This led to my interest in integrative dermatology. I practice integrative medicine and dermatology in Manhattan and New Rochelle, N.Y. I play blues harmonica. My daughter, Alicia, lives in San Francisco. My wife, Rabbi Shohama Wiener, and my cat, Suki, live with me in New Rochelle.”
