About Dr. Glenn Kolansky

I have more than 27 years of experience, and my dedication to providing patients with the best possible skin care is unparalleled. I am proud to say that generations of families have put their trust in me throughout my many years of practice. Because I am a solo practitioner, you will see me directly for your care. I am one of the few highly educated, board-certified dermatologists in New Jersey to have completed a two-year skin cancer fellowship at the University of Iowa in Mohs micrographic surgery, reconstruction, and laser surgery. I have performed more than 20,000 Mohs surgeries and complex wound reconstructions, and I recently received a new board certification in Mohs micrographic dermatologic surgery. I am grateful to have been recognized by my peers as a New Jersey Monthly Top Doctor multiple times, as well as a NJ Top Doc, a division of USA Top Docs, every year since 2013.


Additionally, I serve as the director of Dermatology at Hackensack Meridian Health Riverview Medical Center in Red Bank and as an assistant professor at Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine. I have also published numerous research articles, including some detailing skin reactions to COVID-19 vaccinations.


It is important to examine your skin on a monthly basis and to have your skin evaluated by a professional at least twice per year if you have any sun damage or risk factors.


I also offer natural-looking cosmetic treatments using lasers and fillers, platelet-rich plasma treatments to stimulate hair growth, and radiofrequency micro-needling using the Genius™ laser to improve skin texture. All of these services are offered in a welcoming and professional environment. I treat each and every patient as if they are members of my family.
