Dr. Lisa Travis

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’ philosophy is to embrace lifelong learning. “I initially decided to pursue medicine because I love science and health and get excited about learning new things in the field,” she says. “I always strive to keep up with advances, attend conferences, and learn from my peers.” She shares her love of learning by training future dermatologists at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s – Roosevelt Hospitals. She is an active member of professional societies including The American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

Patients return to Dr. Travis not just for her medical or cosmetic dermatology expertise, but also for her warm demeanor and thorough approach to their unique needs and concerns. “Medicine is a process in which we need to work together with the patient to provide the best care,” she says.

In her free time, Dr. Travis loves to travel and spend time with her husband, three kids, and their adorable Labradoodle puppy, Hudson.

While they thoroughly enjoyed both places, they are happy to return to Dr. Donnelley’s hometown of New York City.

Dr. Donnelley prides herself on her meticulous care and positive relationships with her patients. She is comfortable with both basic dermatological conditions like acne and warts, and also with more complicated medical dermatological conditions that require systemic medications and coordination with rheumatologists, allergists, plastic surgeons and more. Surgery and procedural dermatology are some of Dr. Donnelley’s fortes. She has diagnosed and excised hundreds of malignant and benign neoplasms. When it comes to cosmetic dermatology, she believes in a less is more approach to achieve a very natural look with botox, fillers and lasers. She takes her time to give her patients a fresh and youthful look without appearing “done.” She encourages patients to bring in photos from when they were younger to help guide treatment.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband, three children and 2 dogs, and enjoys travel, any activities involving water, fine dining and reading.
