Kimberly M. Eickhorst MD
Dr. Kimberly M. Eickhorst is a native of Northern New Jersey. She received her undergraduate degree from The University of Virginia, as an Echols Scholar concentrating in both Biology and Commerce, and was awarded the prestigious honor of “Lawn Resident.”
In 2003, she graduated from UMDNJ-Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, in Piscataway, New Jersey and went on to complete her medical internship at Pennsylvania Hospital. As a resident in dermatology at Columbia ~ St. Luke’s- Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan, Dr. Eickhorst was elected to the position of Chief Resident. In 2007 she became board certified by the American Board of Dermatology, and went on to pursue work in private practice with Affiliated Dermatologists and Surgeons in Morristown, NJ, as well as certification as an ACGME-Procedural Dermatology Fellow specializing in Mohs surgery.
Dr. Eickhorst has privileges at Danbury Hospital and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and the American College of Mohs Surgery. She is also a contributor to Skin & Aging: Practical and Clinical Issues in Dermatology, and co-authored a chapter in Textbook of Aging Skin (Springer).
As a fellowship trained procedural dermatologist, Dr. Eickhorst has expertise in many facets of dermatology: Mohs surgery, cosmetic surgery and reconstruction, surgical excisions, skin cancer treatment, medical dermatology, and cosmetic procedures such as Botox, fillers, sclerotherapy (leg vein treatments), and lasers. Dr. Eickhorst strives to bring the latest medical advancements to her patients, with a thoughtful human touch, delivering the highest level of patient care possible.
Dr. Eickhorst believes that the seeds to an important patient-physician relationship are TRUST, RESPECT and COMMUNICATION from both parties.
“I have always been fascinated by how the body works, and wanted to learn how to “fix” things from a health perspective when they went awry. I love connecting the dots and providing 360 degrees of care to my patients. I can assist a patient in addressing all of their medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology concerns, thus providing great continuity of care.”
Kimberly is fueled by creating, in any fashion. So when she isn’t practicing medicine she can be found baking, cooking with my kids or designing a vinyl t-shirt or sewing, knitting or crocheting a blanket, or snapping some photographs or refinishing her cabinets or some other DIY project with her husband.
