Donna Hart, MD

Donna Hart, MD

Donna Hart, MD, a medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatologist, completed her dermatology residency at the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County in Chicago, where she served as chief resident. She went to medical school at Rush University in Chicago. Dr. Hart holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Illinois – Urbana-Champaign, where she earned a Finance major and Chemistry minor.

As the daughter of immigrant factory workers from a Chicago blue-collar neighborhood, she attributes her parents to providing her a strong work ethic. They gave everything to allow their children to pursue advanced educations, which they had never been afforded. Thinking of their unending drive was a major catalyst for Dr. Hart to follow her dream of becoming a doctor when she realized “something was missing” in her financial career.

Dr. Hart is drawn to both the medical and aesthetic aspects of dermatology and is dedicated to helping patients preserve their skin’s wellness. She has published in several medical journals and presented at national meetings on a range of topics including melanoma, hair loss, injectable fillers, and laser procedures.

Dr. Hart is Board Certified by the American Board of Dermatology, and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and Women’s Dermatologic Society.

She and her husband, Adam, are excited to call Austin their home. They love taking day trips to Lake Travis with their puppy. They both enjoy finding spots along the way with great local food. She enjoys staying active by running, kayaking, practicing yoga and Pilates. Dr. Hart is also a football fanatic, so the Austin community is a great fit for her!

Dr. Hart sees patients at our Cedar Park location.

The front desk ladies are very thorough and helpful, their hospitality is top notch, they even offer you water while you wait, isn’t that something. Moments later I was already called back, as with my other not so good experiences I was figuring to wait a while. But nope, I was seen right away! Even better that the medical assistant that was there and talked to me for a bit, she made me feel comfortable and made sure that anything I mentioned was heard. Once the doctor came in, I was in awe of her compassion for the job, Dr.Hart is very understand and very helpful in understanding things that I didn’t even know about.

  • “Everyone (the person I scheduled the visit with, the office staff, the nurse, and the dermatologist) was kind and caring and didn’t make me feel rushed at all. Sometimes medical staff don’t let you finish your sentence before jumping in, so I always try to plan out how to concisely describe my condition or concern for the doctor before I go to an appointment. But I didn’t feel rushed at all with Dr. Hart, even though I came in to discuss three separate issues (removal of possible skin tag, prescription refill, and consultation of mole removal). The nurse was very nice when I told her I have a fear of needles and sometimes faint, but the skin tag removal was so quick and painless that I didn’t have a chance to feel light-headed before it was all over. I appreciated the wound-care / patient portal info card to take home with me. Thank you for your kind medical care and the clean, welcoming office.” — A.R. (December 7, 2017)
