Anna M. Bender, M.D.
As a former resident of the Weill Cornell Dermatology Department, I am honored to join the outstanding dermatology faculty here at Weill Cornell. I specialize in treating dermatological problems in infants, children, and adolescents, and also enjoy caring for adults and older patients. I prioritize making patients feel comfortable and encourage questions during the visit.
Dr. Bender majored in neuroscience and graduated summa cum laude from Amherst College. She attended medical school at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and completed her internship in internal medicine at Saint Vincent's Hospital in New York City. After internship, she completed residency training in dermatology at New York Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medical Center. Following her residency training, Dr. Bender completed an additional year of specialized fellowship training in pediatric dermatology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. This advanced training makes her distinctly qualified to care for children with skin conditions.
