Fairfield County dermatologist Rhonda Klein, MD, MPH has been awarded Top Doctor 2016 by Connecticut Magazine for the first time in her career. She is a board-certified dermatologist at Connecticut Dermatology Group (CDG) with extensive experience treating all aspects of medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology.

Connecticut Magazine conducted an annual survey of more than 5,000 physicians, asking them to recommend a doctor (other than themselves) to whom they would send a loved one for expert medical care. The final list is composed of 807 doctors in 31 specialties.

"I am beyond honored to receive this award and to be recognized by my peers as a Connecticut top doctor” said Dr. Klein. “At CDG, we are focused on providing the highest quality of care to our patients and I am thrilled to be included among this top tier of peer-nominated physicians in our state.”

Dr. Klein has been instrumental in creating a prescription-based pharmaceutical and over-the-counter line of products for CDG, of which some products have become nationwide best sellers for the compounding pharmacy. She also returned recently from the international American Academy of Dermatology conference where she remains active as an editor for Dialogues in Dermatology, a popular monthly audio subscription program.

Before joining CDG in January 2014, she was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Dermatology at Yale University.

Dr. Klein received her BAS in bioengineering and MD from the University of Pennsylvania with honors and her MPH from Columbia University. She completed her medical internship at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City and her dermatology residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital, where she served as Chief Resident. During her training, she spent one year as an NIH research fellow and has experience conducting investigator-initiated clinical trials and epidemiologic research resulting in many peer-reviewed publications. She served as Chief of Dermatology at Bridgeport Hospital from 2011–2013 where she led the consultative dermatology service, outpatient dermatology clinic, and dermatology education for medical residents and students.

Dr. Klein continues to be involved in academia and clinical research, and is also an active member of several professional organizations, including the American Academy of Dermatology, Medical Dermatology Society, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery. She currently serves as an editor for the monthly broadcast “Dialogues in Dermatology” of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology and as a mentor for the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine Alumni Mentorship Program.
