Sumeet Thareja, MD
Aesthetic Specialist & Board Certified Dermatologist located in Melbourne, FL & Tampa, FL
As the founding director of Indigo Dermatology in Tampa and Melbourne, Florida, Sumeet Thareja, MD, provides a complete menu of medical and aesthetic skin care services to residents in the greater central Florida area. He’s passionate about increasing skin cancer awareness and dedicated to educating the community about general skin health.
Dr. Thareja is a dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon who specializes in advanced skin cancer treatments and non-invasive fat reduction. His interest in dermatology stems from a life-long mission to understand the deep connection between skin disease and the psychological burden it creates. He strives to alleviate this burden by helping his patients look and feel their best.
After finishing his undergraduate studies at the University of Miami, Dr. Thareja obtained his medical degree at the University of South Florida College of Medicine in Tampa.
He stayed at USF to complete his residency training in dermatology and then went on to practice dermatology at the James A. Haley VA Department of Dermatology in Tampa, where he served military veterans in the Tampa Bay area.
When Dr. Thareja returned to USF to complete additional internship training in internal medicine, he learned more about the extraordinary burden that chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure can place on those who have them.
That’s why, when he established Indigo Dermatology in January 2016, Dr. Thareja made a conscious decision to work closely with his patients’ primary care providers as well as a cardiologist — he wants to provide superior dermatological care that takes all aspects of patient wellness into account.
In addition to being board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Thareja is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society of Mohs Surgery, and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.
