I have been in private practice in the Cincinnati area as a board-certified dermatologist (FAAD) since 2002. I opened this practice in the Kenwood area in 2006 to create a place where patients would have all their medical and cosmetic dermatological needs met under one roof by a team of caring and professional health care providers and support staff. I hand select every staff member and make sure they believe in our vision: to provide professional and innovative health care in a nurturing environment focusing on the well being of our patients. I am so proud of our team and how we have grown and evolved over the years! I am excited to be the heart and soul of MONA Dermatology and to see my vision for what health care should be come to life.


A little about me: I attended The Johns Hopkins University and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in art history as well as a Masters degree in Epidemiology from The Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health. I then graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and went on to finish my residency in Washington, D.C. at the Washington Hospital Center. I moved back to my hometown of Cincinnati to provide dermatology care to the city that I love and have been blessed with the opportunity to work side by side with my family, Dr. Salem Foad (Rheumatology) and Dr. Wafaa Foad (Internal Medicine). I have two brothers, Dr. Mohab Foad (Orthopedic Hand Surgery) who is also in town at Beacon Orthopaedics, and Dr. Hisham Foad (​​Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Economics, San Diego State University). I am a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, and the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery.


I am the proud mom of two amazing, smart, funny and independent young ladies named Miranda & Laila-Marie who are the loves of my life. I also love my fur baby canine, Sugar P (short for Sugar Pizza). Some of you may see Sugar P visit the office as our therapy dog from time to time. My passions include: my kids, running, long walks, cooking, dance class, traveling, spending time with my family, and I even love to garden when I find the time.

My mission has always been to help my patients achieve healthy, beautiful skin and to treat them as I would want my loved ones treated.
