Certified Dermatology – Vincent Polizio – Physician Assistant

Vincent Polizio Certified Dermatology

Vincent is a certified physician assistant who treats pediatric, adult and geriatric patients. He joined the practice (now Certified Dermatology) in 2000, and is one of our longest-tenured providers. Over the years Vincent helped to redesign the dermatology curriculum for the Sisters of Charity Medical Center Physician Assistant Program at Bayley Seton Hospital in Staten Island, NY. He was also a lecturer at that program for several years and enjoyed introducing new physician assistants to dermatology. Currently, Vincent takes pride in being a dermatology preceptor and educator for the Wagner College Physician Assistant Program in Staten Island, where he trains students in dermatologic medicine and diseases of the skin. Vincent believes in patient education for the detection, prevention and treatment of skin cancer and other skin disorders. He stresses a partnership between the patient, the patient’s family and the practitioner for a better overall outcome for the patient.

“I love the practice of dermatology for so many reasons. Dermatology gives me the opportunity to connect with my patients and help them visibly see their problems go away. It is rewarding because I can instantly make a difference and treat the ‘patient’ not just a disease or a test result. Making a difference is what matters most, no matter how small that difference may appear to be.” – Vincent Polizio, PA-C
