Dr. Thomas Triplett
My fascination for how the body works and desire to get into the medical field began when I was just a young boy, traveling along with my mom to the hospital who was a surgical nurse. When I began my education in the medical field I discovered the importance of the skin being the largest organ of the body and the value of educating people about how it should be taken care of first and not last.
I earned my medical degree's (M.D.) at the Medical University of Lublin in Poland and degree in osteopathic medicine (D.O.) at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. I completed my family practice residency at the Institute for Family Health /Mid-Hudson Family Practice. I also had the opportunity to complete my fellowship in clinical dermatology with the institute for Family Health in Kingston. While practicing in New York, I had the pleasure of training under Dr. Marie Louise Johnson MD, PhD, the first female Dermatology Department chair at Yale medical school and the first female president of the AAD (American Academy of Dermatology). I enjoy all areas of Dermatology, but have special interest in Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, Geriatric Dermatology and Skin Cancer detection and treatment.
I am originally from California and moved to Poland as a young man where I met my wife and we started a family. We lived in Lublin, Poland during Martial Law, then moved to High Falls, NY where the 1961 classic movie Splendor in the Grass was filmed. Now having relocated back to Brentwood, I am able to enjoy being close to my children. I recently became a grandfather which has brought me such happiness and fulfillment in life.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, cycling and hiking. I enjoy cooking alongside my wife making delicious Polish dishes.
