Dr. Val Pierre Vallat, MD, FAAD

Dr. Vallat received his Bachelor of Science degree from Haverford College in Cellular Biology. In 1983, he accepted a research position at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, before receiving his medical degree from Rutgers Medical School (Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine) in 1988. After completing an Internal Medicine residency at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia, he then spent two additional years as a Post Doctoral Fellow involved in clinical dermatology research at The Rockefeller University in New York City, where he authored and published numerous articles in dermatology journals. He then performed his specialty training in Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery at Cornell University Medical Center/New York Hospital in Manhattan.

He is certified by the American Board of Dermatology and has been caring for dermatology patients since 1991. In addition, Dr. Vallat acts as a clinical preceptor for the Wake Forest University School of Medicine Physician Assistant Program, the Davidson College Medical Ethics Program, and the North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Nursing. He regularly participates in the American Academy of Dermatology Free Skin Cancer Screening Program. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, the Dermatology Foundation Leaders Society, the North Carolina Medical Society, and the Mecklenburg County Medical Society.


Dr. Vallat not only cares for general and surgical dermatology patients, such as skin cancer detection and surgery, but also is an expert in a wide variety of cosmetic services. These range from Botox to facial fillers, laser procedures, mole removal, sclerotherapy, and much more. A detailed list of these services is available on the practice’s website 


Dr.  Vallat derives his greatest pleasures in life from spending quality time with his children, laughing, learning, and loving together. He also particularly enjoys camping, skiing, tennis, playing guitar, and an occasional motorcycle ride on a country road.  Check back in a few years for an update, but have no fear, he’ll still be practicing Dermatology, his true professional passion!

Please note the following updates from our practice:

-We already follow strict infection control protocols in our clinic that keep our facilities safe for all patients, and we are continuing to follow these best practices.

-In addition, we have implemented a special COVID-19 preparedness plan and have asked any employees who are feeling sick to remain at home until they are better.

As a patient, you can help us protect the health and well-being of our patients and our community by following these guidelines:

•If you have a fever or are experiencing symptoms of a respiratory infection (e.g., cough, sore throat, fever or difficulty breathing),or history of travel to areas experiencing transmission of COVID-19 or contact with possible COVID-19 patients, please call our office to cancel your appointment.  When you are completely well or had a waiting period, we will do our best to reschedule any cancellations from this time period as soon as possible.

•Plan to come to your scheduled appointment alone, so that there aren't any extra unnecessary people in the office at one time. If you are a new patient, please refer to our website and download the necessary paperwork. If you do not have this information prepared, this could delay your appointment or you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.

•If you have a face mask or face covering, we strongly recommend wearing it as an added precaution.  Our clinical staff will all be wearing masks.

•When you arrive, please read the instructions on the front door. Then check in at the front desk. At that time, our staff will instruct you regarding check in procedures.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in helping us keep all our patients and staff safe and healthy during this time.
