I started this practice after spending 13 years building my career in New York City, but my love for dermatology began much earlier on a sunny beach on the opposite side of the globe.
Becoming a doctor was a dream of mine since I was a little girl growing up in Australia – a place where zinc noses and broad-brimmed hats were part of our school uniform. Having spent nearly every weekend on the beach, I learned from a very young age the harmful impact sun has on our skin. As I matured, I became more and more fascinated with both preventing and reversing the sun’s effects. In my youth, skin protection options were minimal and anything but innovative. I’ve built a career exploring advanced science and the ways in which lifestyle factors into overall skin health.
I believe that with modern science and technology there is no reason anyone should have to “live with” an uncomfortable or damaging dermatological condition. My passion for delivering remarkable changes in the overall confidence and wellbeing of my patients drives everything I do as a dermatologist. I love my work, and I love what my work can do for my patients.
In addition to my career as a leading Dermatologist and medical educator, I’m also a wife and mother. Raising three children, one with severe food allergies, has opened my eyes wide to the role diet, exercise and mindfulness plays in our overall health and wellness. That’s why my clinical philosophy is best summarized as “more than skin deep”. I am always eager and happy to share what I learn with my patients, and invite you to follow along and join the discussion on my brilliant blog.
I want to thank the people of Greenwich for welcoming Greenwich Point Dermatology to the community, and I look forward to seeing you walk through our door.
Yours in good health,

Greenwich Point Dermatology’s modern, inspired practice proudly delivers individualized experiences for our patients. We are highly trained dermatologists who pair advanced technology with a holistic approach to maximize the impact of diet, lifestyle and the environment on your beauty and skin health.
Our expertise covers medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology, and we are dedicated to providing a comfortable and confidential environment for you to discuss your concerns and goals. Using the latest diagnostic and therapeutic services with state-of-the-art technology, we provide our patients with customized care and treatment to achieve superior and stunning results.
Complete and thorough skin examinations are key to maintaining skin health and identifying pre-malignant and malignant skin lesions in their early stage when treatment is most successful. Dr. Dolder is an expert in identifying skin lesions that are, or could possibly lead to, skin cancer including melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, actinic keratosis and dysplastic nevi (atypical moles).
At GPD, we evaluate and thoroughly treat skin disorders, including:
Surgical excisions are performed right in our Greenwich, CT office. Commonly excised lesions include malignant neoplasms, benign or atypical nevi (moles), cysts, and lipomas. Our precise surgical technique minimizes scarring, and electrocautery and cryosurgery may also be utilized to treat a variety of benign, malignant and pre-cancerous lesions.
During your visit, Dr. Dolder will perform a thorough analysis to determine the present condition of your skin and develop a customized program for your individual needs; including topical treatments, lifestyle modifications and cosmetic procedures.
GPD offers the following cosmetic services:
Recently, my good friend made the comment that I am ‘reverse aging’! This is all thanks to Dr Dolder. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my skin! I did a few laser treatments with Dr Dolder because I had complete confidence in her as my doctor. That trust is key because it is a more involved process than an ordinary cosmetic procedure, but one could never get the same results with just creams or cosmetics. It takes a while for the full effect to reveal itself, but it’s worth it. The results really improve the texture and pigmentation of the skin in a way that only new skin can.

When I went for my yearly skin check, Dr Dolder’s sharp eyes focused on a tiny mole on my ear lobe, which she remarked hadn’t been there the prior year. What she saw turned out to be an early, in situ melanoma, which was cured by surgery. I’m so grateful to Dr Dolder for noticing what could have been a big problem, when it was just a small one. Dr Dolder’s clinical skills are enhanced by her delightful personality!

I really appreciate how knowledgeable and proactive Dr Dolder is, even when I bring up small issues like the milia and brown spots. As I get older, those things just accumulate and getting rid of those bumps and discolorations makes a huge difference–I had no idea. And then Dr Dolder incorporates the lasers as part of a long term strategy that is based on utilizing the skin’s own healing factor, which I think is very successful.

I LOVE Dr. Dolder. Not only did I take one look at her skin and say “I want to have what she’s having”. But she is extremely knowledgeable on all the latest treatments for skin and is expert at her craft. My skin has made a complete transformation with her. It not only looks younger, it is fundamentally healthier. One of the best things about her approach is that she doesn’t just treat your skin with the most advanced technology but also prescribes changes in diet and lifestyle. So my skin is actually better inside and out. I would recommend her to anyone.

Until recently Dr Dolder looked after my cosmetic dermatological needs, while I saw a general dermatologist to check moles etc. After my yearly check up, and after being assured that there was nothing that needed attention I went to see Dr Dolder for Botox and fillers. Dr Dolder noticed a mole on my foot. She suggested I have a biopsy taken and sure enough, it was dangerous and had been completely missed at my general check up. Going forward I will only trust Dr Dolder for everything related to my skin. She not only keeps me looking good, but keeps me safe and healthy as well.

Dr. Sarah Dolder has been my dermatologist for the past three years. I had multiple dermatologists prior to Dr. Dolder. Hands down, she is the best of the best. She is knowledgeable, skillful, pro active, and up-to-date on all the newest techniques and products available to help you achieve whatever “natural” look you want. Recently, I saw several women I had not seen in quite awhile. Each one, remarked on how youthful I looked. They attributed this to having a new boyfriend! As we all know, behind every young-looking woman, after the age of 60, is a great cosmetic dermatologist. I would look no further. I totally trust and respect Dr. Dolder and recommend her without reservation.”– C.R. New York
