Dr. Brooke Bair

Regarded as a one of the best dermatologists in New York, Dr. Bair is highly skilled in both medical and cosmetic dermatology. Board-certified, she is known for her thoughtful, patient-centric approach to medicine and for her natural aesthetic with anti-aging treatments. Learn more about Dr. Bair below.

Credentials

Education and Experience

Before starting her own practice, Dr. Bair worked for a number of top dermatology clinics in the country, including Gulf Coast Dermatology in Florida and Greenwich Village Dermatology in Manhattan. In addition, she is a trained Mohs surgeon for the removal of skin cancers and has authored a number of peer-reviewed publications on dermatological topics. Beyond her private practice work, she has spent time serving patients at the Fatima Pediatric Medical Center and the VA Hospital in Castle Point, NY.

Dr. Bair’s skin care philosophy is centered on the whole patient, and takes into account a more holistic perspective than many dermatologists. In addition to skin health and proactive medical care, she is sought after for her skill in cosmetic dermatology, especially anti-aging treatments and injectables such as Botox and filler. Patients from Florida to New York have come to rely on her for her artist’s approach that combines a natural, youthful aesthetic with the latest technology.

Samantha Kyvik, MS, PA-C, a Hudson Valley native, is thrilled to be a part of the Luna Dermatology team in order to serve her local community’s dermatological needs! 

While beginning her career as an urgent care PA, she recognized early on that dermatology is her passion.  Moreover, Samantha has received hands-on, direct training from Dr. Bair in both medical and cosmetic dermatology in order to complement her previous experience.  Like all the staff at Luna Dermatology, she is committed to offering superior healthcare paired with a warm, understanding bedside manner.  

Samantha completed both her undergraduate degree in physician assistant studies and her Master of Science degree in advanced physician assistant studies at Wagner College in Staten Island, New York, where she underwent rigorous training in multiple specialties, including dermatology, general surgery, pediatrics, and emergency/urgent care.  As a result of her training, she was able to treat patients throughout the five boroughs of NYC, which allowed her to diversify her patient care experience. In addition, she also was able to conduct novel research and is currently a published author in a peer reviewed publication.  

Samantha is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and is a member of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants, the New York State Society of Physician Assistants, and the American Academy of Physician Assistants.

In her spare time, she enjoys running, going to the beach (wearing sunscreen of course!) and spending time with her family and friends.
