Margaret D. Kottke, MD
I speak: English
My gender: Female
Where I practice
I had a wonderful childhood growing up in Baltimore. My older sister and I are best friends. My mother was a school teacher and my father was a physician. My parents inspired me to be a physician like my dad and teach people like my mom. I enjoy talking to and getting to know people of all ages as well as biology and science. I knew that if I could combine my passions, using science and technology to help people while getting to know them better, that I would love my work, and I do.
About my practice
I practice general dermatology, treating members of all ages with many different skin conditions. I learned as a resident that individuals feel better if they have made a connection with their physician, and I truly love fostering that bond with people. I love getting to know people and taking care of them. I adore children, especially their honesty and humor, and enjoy hearing the stories of my senior patients who have so much to offer and are willing to share.
How I thrive
I love to talk to my family and friends, both those that I grew up with and those I have made later in life. I enjoy spending time with my husband and children and watching in amazement as the kids grow up. I love good food and good music, and I enjoy listening to my children practice their music.
