Dr. Sarah Cannon M.D., F.A.A.D. is a board-certified dermatologist. She is skilled in all areas including general, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. Dr. Cannon enjoys the variety of dermatology and loves treating patients of all ages.

Dr. Cannon prides herself on her diagnostic skills and meticulous nature. Her caring nature is evident in the time she takes with each patient and the extensive counseling provided for every diagnosis, procedure or medication prescribed.

Dr. Cannon is originally a Philadelphia native and spent the early years of her career practicing in New Jersey. She has recently moved to Maryland as her husband embarks on a new journey in his career and to be closer to some of her family. She looks forward to making Maryland her home and spending much more time with her extended family, particularly her five nieces and nephews.

Dr. Cannon is happily married and has three children. On her days off, you will find her at the soccer fields, on the playground or taking long walks with her family.

I found Dr. Cannon to be professional, knowledgeable, and thorough during my visit this week. It was my first time getting a full skin exam so I was a little nervous, but Dr. Cannon made me comfortable and explained each step of the process. She was thorough during the exam and took her time to address my concerns and answer all of my questions along the way. I highly recommend Dr. Cannon!
