Advanced Dermatology Acquires Nielsen Dermatology and Colorado Dermatology Specialists


Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery has acquired Colorado Dermatology Specialists, founded by Meg Lemon, MD, and Nielsen Dermatology, founded by Timothy Nielsen, MD.

Dr. Lemon has been honored as 5280 magazine's "Top Dermatologist" 18 years in a row. In addition to seeing patients at their two locations in Denver, she and her team, which includes Jim Schleve, MD, Ann Leibold, MD, Daniel Callaghan, MD, Elizabeth Robinson, MD, and Alison Collier, NP, also serve as dermatologists for the National Basketball Association's Denver Nuggets.

"We are proud to welcome Dr. Lemon, her team and her patients to the Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery family," said Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery's founder and executive chairman Matt Leavitt, MD. "They have shown that they share our deeply held commitment to providing comprehensive dermatologic care in a welcoming environment that elevates our patients' experiences while adhering to the highest standards of quality and patient safety. We look forward to bringing additional resources to Dr. Lemon and her team which will allow them to focus less of their time on back-office work and more of their time on doing what they do remarkably well – caring for their patients." 

Dr. Nielsen earned his medical degree from the University of South Florida College of Medicine in Tampa in 1991, completed his internship at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami and his residency at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. He also completed two fellowships in dermatopathology: the first at New York University and the second at the Ohio State University. 

"I am excited to join the Advanced Dermatology team and admire the Advanced Dermatology commitment to quality, service and integrity – which is aligned with my vision for exceptional patient care. I look forward to working more closely with their local leadership as I continue to serve patients and build the practice with their support," said Dr. Nielsen.
