Dr. Farhaad Riyaz is a board-certified dermatologist, fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon and fellowship-trained cosmetic dermatologic surgeon. A biomedical engineer by undergraduate training, he attended the Medical College of Virginia where he stood first place in his class and served as president of the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.
