Get to Know Dr. Ryan R. Riahi, Board Certified Dermatologist
Ryan R. Riahi, MD, practices at DermSurgery Associates’ Southwest Memorial Office. Patients love his easy going, upbeat demeanor, and how he genuinely takes their well-being to heart. As a patient of Dr. Riahi’s, you will never feel like a number or just another medical chart. Taking a personalized approach, Dr. Riahi spends time with his patients and educates them on their conditions and possible causes, as well as different therapy options. He also strives to match the treatment with the patient’s lifestyle and for your convenience, often has same-day appointments available.
“Unlike medical conditions that involve internal organs and systems, skin problems are on the surface and often seen by everyone, which makes patients feel self-conscious,” says Dr. Riahi. “One of the most gratifying aspects of being a dermatologist is the ability to help my patients feel more self-confident.”
In addition to skin cancer detection and medical dermatology, Dr. Riahi offers a range of cosmetic services producing beautiful results. Services include Botox—which relaxes wrinkles and may help keep new ones from forming—and dermal fillers to minimize wrinkles and depressions, and to enhance and augment tissue shape and volume.
Dr. Riahi chose dermatology because of the breadth and depth of the field, and the variety of cases, procedures, and technology involved. After earning a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and molecular biology at Houston Baptist University, graduating summa cum laude, he completed a medical degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas, where he received the Alpha Omega Alpha honor society award for being in the top of his class. He went on to complete an internship at Tulane University Hospital in New Orleans, and a dermatology residency at the Louisiana State University Department of Dermatology, where he served as Chief Resident. Trained in general and cosmetic dermatology and dermatologic surgery, Dr. Riahi has extensive experience in the management and treatment of dermatologic conditions in individuals with skin of color.
Dr. Riahi has published numerous manuscripts and continues to mentor medical students. His clinical interests include general and cosmetic dermatology, skin aging, hair loss, the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer, retinoids, and the treatment of photodamaged skin.
