The more educated you are about your skin, the healthier your skin can be.



Dr. Monica Rani believes strongly in educating patients and working with them to treat all skin and hair conditions.

Her goal is for every patient to have a good understanding of their diagnosis, feel confident about the treatment plan and their ability to manage the condition. No matter a patient’s skin type, Dr. Rani will work with them to achieve the best outcome.



Dr. Rani completed residency training in both internal medicine and dermatology at the University of Minnesota where she was chief resident. She then joined Northwestern University as a full-time faculty member, teaching residents and medical students, and consulting at the hospital. In private practice, she continues to believe in educating her patients.
