Tina Nandi, M.D., recently opened the Toledo Skin Institute at 2000 Regency Court, Suite 203. Dr. Nandi and her family relocated to northwest Ohio when her husband, Sumon Nandi, M.D., a board certified orthopaedic surgeon, accepted an assistant professorship at The University of Toledo.
“I had also considered affiliating with the University because of my interest in academics, but chose to open a practice with a medical dermatology focus in the Sylvania area,” she said.
“While many dermatologists may direct their energy toward aesthetic services, my emphasis is really on managing common, and often chronic, skin diseases. A sound medical dermatologist can afford patients considerable improvement in quality of life with a thoughtful approach to treatment,” she reported.
“One of the things that resonated with me during my time as a faculty member in dermatology is that all hoofbeats do not come from horses—they may belong to a zebra! In other words, it is important to consider the full range of skin diseases that may be presenting in my office, so the patient can benefit from an accurate diagnosis and treatment. It is important to me that I personally consult with every patient who schedules a visit in my office, so he or she is reassured being under the direct care of a physician,” she added.
Dr. Nandi and her staff, dermatology medical assistants Andrea Noack and Melissa Meek and office manager Brittany McCartney hold clinic hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The clinic offers adult, pediatric, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology services. According to Dr. Nandi, they plan to expand clinical days as the practice demands.
According to Dr. Nandi, she selected the name, “Toledo Skin Institute” to localize her practice and to emphasize the medical and academic approach she and her staff offer. She said she wanted her office to be in a centralized location with easy access for patients.
Dr. Nandi received her medical degree at the Emory University School of Medicine and spent a year doing postdoctoral research in psoriasis epidemiology at the University of Utah. She is a graduate of the dermatology residency at the University Hospitals of Cleveland, Case Western Reserve University, where there has been a tradition of national excellence for psoriasis research. Most recently, she was faculty at the Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, Mass., where she was honored to teach medical students and residents specializing in the field of dermatology.
