MBS, Media Doctorate
Dr. Erik Soine is a board certified dermatologist with a strong commitment to helping others with top notch health care.
Dr. Erik Soine understands that dermatological issues are more than just skin deep. They can often have a profound effect on a person’s self-esteem, as well as their physical well-being. Dr. Soine is committed to spending the time to get to know each patient and their skin care challenges, developing a specialized plan to meet their unique needs.
As a board certified dermatologist by the American Board of Dermatology with training in both dermatology and internal medicine, you can trust Dr. Soine to personally provide the most state-of-the-art, clinically sound treatment… whether it’s a medical condition or cosmetic procedure.
Dr. Soine graduated Summa Cum Laude from Louisiana State University with a BS in Biological Science. He continued on at LSU, earning his medical doctorate, then completing his residency in both dermatology and internal medicine. Raised in Mandeville, Dr. Soine has deep roots in the North Shore community and understands the needs and concerns of its residents.
A commitment to his faith combined with a deep concern for global and local issues has led Dr. Soine to a number of volunteer efforts including: an internship in Sierra Leone helping assess the state of health care in the developing African nation; a medical and dental mission to Granada, Nicaragua through the Archdiocese of New Orleans; and helping run a temporary hospital following Hurricane Katrina.
Throughout his career, Dr. Soine has focused on passing on his knowledge to future and current physicians. He has taught basic examination skills to medical students as well as lead discussions with 1st-year medical students on topics such as medical ethics. He is committed to academics and serves as gratis faculty in the department of dermatology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and serves as part-time LSU faculty at the Department of Veteran Affairs in New Orleans. He feels equally as passionate about educating his patients as well as upcoming medical professionals.
It’s this commitment to helping others that make Dr. Soine an attentive, compassionate provider who constantly strives to deliver the best possible care.
When not caring for his patients, Dr. Soine enjoys spending time with wife Rebecca, a fellow dermatologist, and their three children. Dr. Soine was also part of the LSU Fighting Tigers Marching Band, playing the tenor saxophone.
