Since its founding in 2010 by Robyn Siperstein-Paul, M.D., Siperstein

Dermatology Group has attracted top doctors who have

trained at the nation’s most prestigious institutions, including

Yale, Cornell, NYU and now Columbia. With the addition of Dr. Mackay-Wiggan,

SDG has a talented physician, with academic expertise in

treating the most challenging dermatological conditions.

Dr. Mackay-Wiggan treats patients with all dermatologic conditions.

However, she is most passionate about evaluating and

treating hair loss and scalp disorders. Hair loss can be caused by

a variety of conditions, including male/female pattern hair loss,

alopecia areata and scarring alopecias. Additionally, hair loss

can be caused by stress, illness and certain medications.

She is now the seventh board certified dermatologist to join SDG.

Dr. Mackay-Wiggan is also passionate about medical research.

“One of the reasons we felt it was a wonderful synergy is that

SDG is quickly becoming the most well-rounded dermatologic

center of excellence in South Florida. SDG recently started conducting

clinical research, which is something I have been doing

for 15 years,” she says.

The opportunity to move to Florida was serendipitous for Dr.

Mackay-Wiggan, who has been thinking about moving closer to

family for years. Once she met with Dr. Siperstein, “it felt like a

perfect match right away,” she says.

She also appreciates the practice’s philosophy of spending

more time with patients, which allows time for educating and

explaining all treatment options, so doctors and patients can

make informed decisions together.

“Even when there are limited treatments available, I can give

patients a good understanding of their condition, and I can offer

advice, support and tips for what they can do to optimize the

situation,” she says.

SDG also offers state-of-the-art technology, expertise and

procedures all areas of dermatology, from skin cancer screening

and prevention to the latest cosmetic procedures and laser

treatments designed to make patients look and feel their best.
