Anthony S. Dee, MD
Dermatologist in Buffalo, NYDermatologic Center for Excellence
Born and raised in the mountains of Idaho, Dr. Anthony Dee knew from the very beginning he wanted to practice medicine in a quiet rural setting. Pursuing the educational pathway to become a board certified dermatologist, Dr. Dee took advantage of every opportunity to expand his horizons and fulfill personal goals. Graduating from Brigham Young University, and then the Medical College of Wisconsin, Dr. Dee entered his internship in the United States Air Force. His continued desire to learn and train led to becoming a Flight Surgeon at the Air Force’s “Top Gun” base. It was during this time of serving his country, flying in fighter jets, and traveling throughout the world, that he came to appreciate the diagnosis and management of skin related disorders. Upon concluding his military commitment, Dr. Dee and his family moved to Buffalo, NY where he completed a “Photodynamic Therapy - Cutaneous Oncology” clinical fellowship at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. From there he entered directly into the dermatology residency at State University of New York-Buffalo. Graduating from residency training and passing the American Board of Dermatology certification examination in 2003, Dr Anthony Dee opened his solo general dermatology practice in Clarence, NY.
