About Dr. Gerdes

Dr. Michelle Gerdes specializes in Pediatric Dermatology at Children’s Hospital. She attended medical school and completed her dermatology residency at LSU Health New Orleans. With more than 12 years of experience as a pediatric dermatologist, Dr. Gerdes is certified by the American Board of Dermatology. When asked why she chose to practice Dermatology, Dr. Gerdes said, “I take care of infants all the way up to the elderly. I am blessed to be able to develop long-lasting relationships with patients and sometimes just treat an acute problem that never requires follow-up. I never have the same day! This keeps me on my toes and I’m always learning.”

Dr. Gerdes sees patients at the main campus of Children’s Hospital in Uptown New Orleans and at Children’s Hospital Metairie Center.
