Alina Markova, MD

About Me

I am a board-certified dermatologist who specializes in treating skin conditions that result from bone marrow transplantation (BMT). My outpatient clinical practice is devoted to caring for people affected by graft-versus-host (GVHD) disease of the skin. I also specialize in treating people who develop skin, hair, and nail conditions as a side effect of their bone marrow transplant, and people who have cancerous wounds. As Co-Director of the Multidisciplinary GVHD Clinic with the BMT Service, I partner with oncologists, hematologists, nurses, and other experts to provide our patients with comprehensive care to effectively address their symptoms. I also have the privilege of leading the Inpatient Dermatology Service, where we provide high-quality dermatology care to people who have been admitted to the hospital.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
