About Hacker Dermatology and Our Founder
Dr. Steven Hacker founded Hacker Dermatology in 1994. He started in a small office just over the Intracoastal Bridge on George Bush Blvd. in Delray Beach long before Atlantic Avenue became a trendy destination spot. Originally working just two days a week with Dr. John B. Squires, our practice quickly outgrew its small quarters.
Word soon spread about Dr. Hacker, a Phi Beta Kappa, who was barely 20 when one of 12 students selected to enter medical school early through the prestigious Junior Honors Medical Program. As a dermatologist to many of the doctors, models, and celebrities in Palm Beach County, his large practice went to completely state-of-the-art electronics in 2000 when he digitized over 25,000 patient charts. This was years before the President even mentioned electronic health records!
His reputation for providing expert, caring and ethical dermatology earned him recognition from his colleagues and peer physicians, as they repeatedly voted him a Castle Connolly, Florida “Top Doctor.” As an author, he’s published in textbooks and more than 20 peer-reviewed medical journals. As a skin cancer surgeon, Dr. Hacker has treated over 20,000 skin cancer patients, many requiring Mohs micrographic surgery for high-risk tumors located on the face.
A Team of Board-Certified Physicians
Many years ago, our practice expanded when two other dermatologists, Dr. Deborah Saff and Dr. Russel Glaun, joined our team. Both Dr. Saff and Dr. Glaun are also recognized as “Top Physicians” and practice the same high-quality dermatology as Dr. Hacker. Dr. Saff received her training at Cleveland Clinic, while Dr. Glaun is triple board-certified in Dermatology, Dermatopathology and Anatomic Pathology. All of our doctors are board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology. This is the only board that recognizes dermatologists as a result of board exams and completing a certified dermatology residency. In recent years, Dr. Villacorta , a board certified Dermatologist, joined the practice as well as Dr. Dan O’Hara, board certified Plastic and Reconstructive surgeon and Dr. Andrea Aedo, a board certified Podiatrist.
Dr. Hacker is also a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, a fellow of the American Society for Dermatology Surgery, a fellow of the American Society of Mohs Surgery and a fellow of the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery. View Dr. Hacker’s Curriculum Vitae.
