About Me

As a dermatologist at Ohio State, I take the time to talk with my patients about their conditions. I help them to understand all aspects of their diagnosis, answer any questions they may have and help them find the most cost-effective treatment option possible.

I specialize in hospital dermatology and work with individuals who have complex medical and autoimmune skin diseases. I help treat graft-versus-host disease, skin conditions in cancer patients and sclerotic skin diseases including morphea, scleroderma, nephrogenic systemic fibrosis and eosinophilic folliculitis, in addition to general dermatology.

I like the collegial and world-class atmosphere that Ohio State offers. I also enjoy the challenge of treating rare and difficult diseases.

In my free time, I like to read and enjoy the outdoors.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Kaffenberger has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
