At Waverly DermSpa, our mission is to treat every patient with an upscale experience personalized by one of the most prestigious sought-after dermatologists in the country.

Waverly DermSpa is Dr. Mikhail’s second act, here in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale. It’s a dermatology practice reimagined – where you’ll get top notch care with a personalized touch in a setting that’s serene and spa like. Dr. Mikhail’s vision was to build a practice that she, her patients, and her staff would love to come to.

The name Waverly has a very special meaning. Dr. Mikhail attended the New York University College of Arts and Sciences located at 32 Waverly Place in Manhattan. Waverly Place is a narrow street that runs through Greenwich Village along the north side of Washington Square Park. It’s arguably the most beautiful street in the city! She majored in biology and Spanish and minored in chemistry. While at NYU, Dr. Mikhail was selected for one of the most prestigious Honors Programs on campus, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholars. She was accepted by early decision into the NYU School of Medicine, one of the top 5 medical schools in the country.

During medical school, Dr. Mikhail participated in a skin cancer research fellowship. She was awarded a grant, published numerous studies in medical journals, and graduated with honors in cell biology. After graduation, Dr. Mikhail completed her medical internship and dermatology residency at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospitals (now Mount Sinai). She served as Chief Resident in her final year.

After her training, Dr. Mikhail practiced dermatology in New York City for over a decade. She held a faculty position at Mount Sinai where she taught young doctors and was the Director of Phototherapy. At the same time, she built one of the premier private practices in the city. Dr. Mikhail has been quoted in numerous media outlets and is a medical writer for GoodRx.

Dr. Mikhail totally cleared up my skin, which I’ve struggled with since middle school—I only regret that I didn’t find her sooner
