My name is Dr. Glenn Zellman and I am one of the board certified dermatologists at Arizona Dermatology. I grew up in Oceanside, New York and left there at age 17 and went south and basically never went back. I went to Duke University for my undergraduate studies, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude and it was such a great environment to study. Duke is always one of the top medical schools in the country that I stayed on there for medical school where I graduated AOA with highest honors.
So then I went on to Baylor in Houston, Texas, that's where I did my dermatology residency. It's a tremendous place to learn dermatology. Baylor is part of 20 hospitals a Texas Medical Center, where we really see it all and study with the greatest faculty from around the world. So I did my oncology training at MD Anderson, I learned my pediatric dermatology at Texas Children's Hospital, where we had a genodermatosis clinic where patients with the rarest disorders, that you only read about in textbooks, would come from around the world. And we would see them in clinic with all the specialties together.
To Ben Taub hospital, which is our city hospital where I learned all my infectious dermatology, my tropical dermatology and we even had a weekly sexual transmitted disease and leprosy clinic. So I really had tremendous training at Baylor and it was a great place to learn dermatology.
I reached out to some of my colleagues, who knew people in Arizona, and some of my friends in the pharmaceutical industry. And I asked them where would be a good place for me to practice? And sure enough, they kept mentioning Arizona Dermatology, and all the physicians here and the providers by name.
And as soon as I came here and I met all the people, I instantaneously felt the warm and welcoming family environment that's here, it really pervades the practice. And then once I took a closer look I could see there's really a high level of intellectual pursuit here and a commitment to patient care, really doing what's in the best interest of the patient that matches the type of dermatology that I like to practice.
