Meet Our Providers

Jonathan Stuart Crane, D.O., F.A.O.C.D.

Our coastal community offers us many wonderful opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Long term exposure to the sun can lead to conditions such as skin cancer, premature aging, sun damage, wrinkles, and melasma. In the past, these sun-induced forms of skin damage have been difficult to treat, but exciting new developments in laser technology have given new hope to patients with these conditions.

Dr. Jonathan Crane has been a board certified dermatologist since 1994. He has been in practice for himself after forming Atlantic Dermatology Assoc. P.A. in 1994. The practice started in 1994 and currently occupies 20,000 sq feet. Dr Crane has published over 100 articles and is one of Allergans’ National Educators for Botox injection training. Dr Crane has pioneered multiple innovative procedures such as the treatment of irregular pigmentation and skin tightening with the 755 wave length laser. This laser device trial took place from 2/15/02 and concluded on 4/19/04. He wrote the first article on this procedure it was the feature article in Cosmetic Dermatology in August 2003. Dr Crane was recognized by Candela Laser Company for innovation in laser medicine Feb. 2005. Another treatment that Dr. Crane pioneered was utilizing an Ellman Surgitron FFPF for wrinkled, sagging skin or bags under the eyes. He wrote the first article on this treatment also. This article was published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology in September 2008.
Dr. Crane welcomes new and established patients of all ages.
