Nora Maya Kachaturoff, M.D.

A Michigan native, Dr. Kachaturoff has years of experience in providing friendly, professional dermatological care. She prides herself on making her patients feel as comfortable as possible, and reminds you to always wear your sunscreen.

Dr. Kachaturoff was born in Michigan but moved to southern California when she was five. She grew up in San Diego. It was in San Diego that she learned to love baseball (the San Diego Padres moved in to her apartment complex every spring!), gardening and the outdoors. Her family went camping all over the deserts and mountains of southern California.

Dr. Kachaturoff double majored in Biology and Chemistry at the University of California at Irvine. She attended Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York. There she learned about much more than medicine, including fashion, cultural diversity, food, and valuable lessons in appreciation of art, music and theater. It was early in her 4 years at Albert Einstein College of Medicine that she discovered that she LOVED dermatology! Dr. Kachaturoff is a very visually oriented person and dermatology was the medical specialty that fit her perfectly!

Dr. Kachaturoff received her dermatology training at Henry Ford Hospital under the former chairman, Dr. Edward Krull. During that time, the previous chairman, Dr. Clarence Livingood (more familiar to our older patients as the former team doctor for the Detroit Tigers), was still in practice and was a great positive influence to her. She served as Chief Resident during her final year of residency in 1983.

After working a short time for another dermatologist on the east side, Dr. Kachaturoff, took over the practice of Dr. Harold Usndek upon his retirement in 1985. She has remained in practice on the corner of Mack and Moran in Grosse Pointe Farms since then.

Dr. Kachaturoff was selected by her peers for inclusion in the Best Doctors of America for 2014. The Best Doctors in America is a vital resource that contains the names and professional profiles of approximately 45,000 of the best physicians in the United States. Dr. Kachaturoff has held this honor every year since 2007.

Dr. Kachaturoff lives in Grosse Pointe Park. She’s still a big fan of culinary diversity, enjoys cooking, and trying new recipes. She visits Moab, Utah twice a year for a week of hiking in the desert and mountains. She enjoys walking, bicycling and recently has become interested in golf. Dr. Kachaturoff loves to travel and visit museums. Three of her favorite museums are the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, New York, the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, and The Henry Ford in Dearborn. She collects both blown glass and shoes! Dr. Kachaturoff loves loves cars. The 2006 Miata MX-5 is on the block to make room for the black rag top Mustang of the future.....
