Dr. Vandana "Wendy" Madkan a dermatologist in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills



Dear Patients,


It is with mixed emotions that I announce my relocation from California to Texas. I have enjoyed being a dermatologist to this community for the past 8+ years. I will greatly miss my patients, employees, and fellow healthcare professionals. However, my husband, my new baby girl, and I look forward to reconnecting with our extended friends and family. Like many of you, during this pandemic, my family has taken the opportunity to consider our choices; my decision to close the office, while very difficult and not undertaken lightly, has been with the focus of family in mind.


Please excuse my not calling and telling each one of you personally as I would ideally like to have done. Your dermatological health is vital to everyone in my practice. We want to take this opportunity to provide you with some information regarding your future skincare needs. While I will return to the Beverly Hills area periodically to continue my clinical research studies, my practice will no longer see patients via telehealth or in person visits after April 22nd.


We encourage you to schedule your next appointment with your new dermatologist. Please see the list below of physicians that I have worked with to help continue your care. They are in each case highly trained, kind, and skilled dermatologists whom I know personally and to whose offices I would be happy to send my own family. I recommend that you contact our office in the next 30 days so that we may send you your records; this ensures you have everything you need to transfer care before the office closes.


Should you need your charts after April 22nd, they will be in the care of Dr Lawrence Osman, MD of Calabasas. If you need your records transferred to a different dermatologist’s office, their team will be happy to assist you. Please note that medical charts are held for a required 7-year period from your last appointment date and will be appropriately destroyed.

Thank you again for the opportunity to care for you; it has been a pleasure and a true privilege.

Dr Vandana Madkan MD
