About Jennifer DeSimone, MD

Dr. Jennifer DeSimone is a specialty care physician board certified in dermatology. She joins Inova Medical Group with 5 years of clinical experience. She has a special interest in management of cutaneous lymphomas, skin cancer in organ transplant recipients and other complex skin cancers.

Most recently Dr. DeSimone served as a Director of Cutaneous Lymphoma.
