Loyd Godwin, MD

In 2013, Dr. Godwin opened Dermatology Physicians of Connecticut with the goal of having a team of dermatologists in CT that provide personalized care and the latest dermatological advancements to patients through two state-of-the-art office facilities in Norwalk and Shelton. The practice focuses on general dermatology for adults and children as well as cosmetic and laser dermatology. Since then, his practice has expanded to multiple locations  throughout Connecticut.

After graduating Summa Cum Laude from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Godwin earned his Doctor of Medicine degree at the New York University School of Medicine, where professors elected him to the Alpha Omega Alpha Society for his outstanding work. He completed his internship at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City and his dermatology residency at Stony Brook University on Long Island. Dr. Godwin is board certified by the American Board of Dermatology and a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties. When not busy with his wife and three daughters, you can find him out and about playing golf and tennis (while wearing sunscreen, of course).

"Good doctor, good attitude, got right to the point and was very positive and knew what he was talking about."

"Dr.Godwin has a lot of energy and clearly has an immediate idea about how to treat a situation. The office was pleasant and the nurse was excellent, plus I only had to wait about 10 minutes in the waiting room. It seems that Dr.Godwin may be a little rushed either because he's so high energy or he may have a long list of patients to see, both of which are positives overall. Although it was only my first time meeting him, I would not hesitate to return or to recommend him."
