A native of Glenview, IL, Dr. Sapna Patel Vaghani is a Board-Certified Pediatric Dermatologist with a passion for working with children and adolescents. She finds that the most rewarding part of being a pediatric dermatologist is seeing the joy and relief on a patient or parent’s face when they come in for a follow-up visit and their skin condition has significantly improved or cleared.

In her experience, Dr. Vaghani has treated many young children and teenagers with skin conditions that make them look different from their peers, whether it may be due to hair loss, the loss of skin color, or a large birthmark. These changes can lead to significant distress for the patients and families. She believes it is important for her patients to know that she is an advocate for them and is there to help guide them through these difficult times and find a treatment plan with successful results.

Dr. Vaghani specializes in the evaluation and treatment of acne, eczema, hair loss, vitiligo, hemangiomas, and vascular malformations, while also performing surgical excisions of moles and birthmarks. She also provides Pulsed Dye Laser treatments for port wine stains and hemangiomas.

Outside of work, Dr. Vaghani lives in Naperville with her husband and 2 young children. They love cooking, baking, dancing, & reading together!

Dr. Vaghani on patient care

I am both a physician and a parent, and I approach each patient as I would my own child. My goal is always to provide quality care and education to patients and families while establishing long-term relationships.

My 9 month daughter had only one appointment with Dr Vaghani and after following her three weeks treatment plan, her eczema went away completely. She is a new baby. Ever since she was born I could not feel her baby skin because of dryness in her body but now her skin is so soft and smooth. I cant thank Dr Vaghani enough for all her help. She is very concerned, well educated, caring and sweet Doctor. Love her so much.

My daughter had her first appointment with Dr. VAGHANI. She is simply the best. She took so much time to discuss our concerns as a parent. Her staff is very friendly and caring as well. My 8 month daughter is suffering from eczema and I cant wait to follow her plan of treatment to cure her and get hee healthy and baby skin back. She is a well informed, beautiful and very concerned doctor.

Dr. Vaghani is kind and compassionate and has an excellent rapport with teens ... which is difficult to find. She has treated three members of our family and every encounter has been positive. Dr. Vaghani is a great teacher and spends as much times as needed to answer all of our questions.

Dr. Sapna is amazing! Cared for my son with high functioning autism and made him comfortable even with serious sensory disorders. Booked him immediately when we couldn't get him in anywhere else. Thank God she made herself available to see him. Properly diagnosed him with two serious infectious diseases. Treatment was spot on. Worked with his optometrist to come up with a care plan to ensure that the right treatment was prescribed. Hands down one of the best physicians our family has ever had. Highly recommend. Thank you!!!

We did not wait long to get in! That's always my first concern! She was with us very quickly after we were in a room as well. My 4 year old daughter had to have a stubborn wart on her toe frozen. Dr. Vaghani was very personable and didn't just talk to me, she spoke to my daughter as well. She was so engaging with my daughter that she didn't even realize we were at a doctors office. For the usually scary freezing process she explained the process so that my daughter was at ease. There was a few quick stings and then she did a dazzling magic trick with the dry ice that made my daughter forget the pain. After our appointment my daughter couldn't stop talking about the "magic trick" she saw at the doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Vaghani to anyone looking for a pediatric dermatologist!
