Danielle Yeager, MD
Dr. Danielle G. Yeager is a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship trained Mohs Micrographic Surgeon. She is an expert in the treatment of skin cancers, reconstruction and cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Yeager earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology from Pennsylvania State University, where she graduated magna cum laude. She attended Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine where she was elected by faculty and peers into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society and Gold Humanism Honor Society for excellence in patient care. She was awarded the American Medical Women’s Association Glasgow-Rubin Certificate for Academic Achievement, which is presented to women who graduate in the top ten percent of their medical school class.
She completed her medical internship at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. She then relocated to Detroit for her dermatology residency at Henry Ford Medical Center where she was director of cosmetics in her final year. Following residency, Dr. Yeager completed a prestigious fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology at Case Western Reserve University/ University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. During her fellowship, she received extensive training on advanced reconstruction following the removal of skin cancers and participated in the weekly multidisciplinary tumor board to provide the highest quality, evidenced-based care to high-risk skin cancer patients. Her passion is providing advanced surgical reconstruction after skin cancer surgery to allow her patients to heal well and feel happy with their appearance. This is the most rewarding aspect of her career.
She has authored and published numerous papers and textbook chapters on skin cancer and surgical dermatology. Notably, she was an editor of the book entitled, "Practical Guide to Dermatology: The Henry Ford Manual."
As a New Jersey native, she is excited to finally relocate to her home state and care for a patient population that is near and dear to her heart. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and chasing after her 2-year-old. She is a big fan of Penn State football and her Peloton bike.
