About Me

As a general dermatology specialist, I treat patients with a wide variety of conditions like acne, warts, rashes, nail diseases, pigmentation disorders and skin cancers.

I want my patients to view me as a compassionate partner and reliable resource in their health care. I believe it’s important to educate patients about all of their options in order to provide the highest level of treatment possible.

As a graduate of The Ohio State University College of Medicine, it’s a privilege to return and help to train the next generation of physicians. I also enjoy collaborating with The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center’s talented team of dermatologists to provide innovative patient care.

In my free time, I enjoy spending family time with my husband and three children. I also love reading and creative crafting.

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 10/25/2021, Dr. Malerich has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
