About

History
Dermatologists of Southwest Ohio (DSWO) was founded in 1978 by Stephen B. Levitt, M.D. who returned to his hometown of Dayton after completing his dermatology training at the University of Cincinnati. Dr. Levitt brought energy, skill and the mantra of “patient first” to Dermatology in Dayton and the Miami Valley.

The Fourteen dermatologic physicians at DSWO are exceptionally trained and skilled individuals who evaluate and treat patients with various emphasis on medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology.

Mission
The mission of DSWO is to provide easy access to high quality dermatologic care with a goal of making patients look and feel their best regardless of age. The staff at the four separate sites throughout the Dayton community strive to make patient visits convenient while providing an environment that is consistently friendly, courteous, and caring.

Patients First
The “patient first” mantra simply means that our patients and their dermatologic health is our first priority.
