Find out more about me and my career


Dr. Azadeh Tajmir-Riahi


I completed my training as a general practitioner in Vienna in 2007 at the Rudolfstiftung Hospital, after which I trained as a specialist in skin and venereal diseases at the dermatology clinic of the Friedrich-Alexander University Clinic in Erlangen.

During my training at the university clinic, the focus was on diagnostics, therapy and follow-up care for melanoma (black skin cancer) and other malignant skin tumors (e.g. white skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma).

Of course, the diagnosis and therapy of all diseases associated with the skin, hair and nails, such as atopic dermatitis (neurodermatitis), psoriasis (psoriasis), other inflammatory / non-inflammatory skin diseases, autoimmune diseases, hair loss, acne and sexually transmitted diseases are part of the daily routine.

The operative area of ​​dermatology as well as the aesthetic area with the treatment of signs of aging (e.g. botulinum toxin injections) as well as therapies for the treatment of acne scars and the removal of cosmetically disturbing skin changes (e.g. fibromas) are not neglected.
