Sunny Walia, MD FAAD
Dr. Sunny Walia is a board-certified dermatologist who is dedicated to providing unparalleled patient care. She earned her medical degree summa cum laude from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans. Following this, she interned at Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation in internal medicine in New Orleans, completed her dermatology residency at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, and completed a laser and cosmetic fellowship with the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery under the auspices of Dr. Tina Alster in Washington DC.
Dr. Walia chose to go into dermatology after her own experience with dermatologists. Growing up with her own skin issues, she understands what it’s like to not feel good about your skin and how profoundly dermatologists can change people’s lives. She was inspired to help other people feel better about themselves in the same way and has been enjoying making a difference in people’s lives ever since.
In an effort to give her patients the highest quality of care that she can, Dr. Walia is committed to treating every patient the same way she would if they were a family member. She always honors each of her patients with respect and is careful to include them in the decision-making process. Every treatment plan she prescribes is a team effort between her and her patients.
The fact that dermatology is a constantly-evolving field continues to fuel Dr. Walia’s passion for dermatology and patient care. At Aesthetic & Dermatology Center, Dr. Walia uses her keen sense of diagnosis and her compassion and empathy to develop treatment plans that are patient-centered and utilize the latest advancements in medical and cosmetic dermatology. Because of this, Dr. Walia has been recognized as Washington Top Doctor since 2008.
Dr. Walia is constantly excited by both medical and cosmetic dermatology, providing her patients with a well-rounded dermatologic treatment plan that addresses all of their skincare concerns. Her patients are like her family, and it’s this human connection that makes coming into the office each day so utterly enjoyable.
Dr. Walia is friendly, professional, expert and kind. She puts you at ease the moment she sees you, and clearly explains procedures, remedies and recommendations. She treats a number of our family and we all love her. I highly recommend Dr. Walia to anyone looking for an excellent dermatologist.
