Dr. Jonathan Ungar is a board-certified Dermatologist focusing on skin cancer. He is the Medical Director of the Waldman Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center at Mount Sinai and specializes in monitoring, detecting, diagnosing, and treating of skin cancers. To augment traditional Total Body Skin Exams to detect skin cancers, he utilizes cutting-edge, non-invasive techniques including:
- Mole Mapping / Total Body Photography

- Reflectance Confocal Microscopy
- Electrical Impedance Spectrosopy
- Gene expression testing
These combined techniques and technologies allow for the most up-to-date capabilities in non-surgical, scar-free diagnosis of skin cancers.
After graduating from Harvard College, Dr. Ungar worked in management consulting for several years. During this period, he realized that a career in medicine was his calling, and he returned to Harvard to complete the required post-baccalaureate course work.
