Dr. Janiga was born and raised in Chicago, IL. He attended the Loyola University of Chicago for his undergraduate degree and Loyola University’s Stritch School of Medicine. He furthered his education by obtaining an immunodermatology research fellowship at the University of Chicago and then his residency in dermatology at the University of Chicago where he served as chief resident in his final year there. During his residency, he concurrently completed a clinical pharmacology traineeship sponsored through the National Institute of Health.
During his career, he has had experience in all areas of dermatology, including both the medical and surgical sides of the specialty. He has been actively volunteering in his community and has participated in medical missions in Central America, as well as teaching other physicians and resident physicians over the years.
He has spent most of his approximately 30 years of dermatology experience in solo private practice but is very honored to be able to join the Oak Dermatology team of expert, board-certified physicians and providers. He truly takes the approach of "treat others as you would treat yourself" approach and encourages and promotes his patients to take an active role in their healthcare decisions.
Dr. Janiga is married to his wife, Alina, of 36 years and resides in the western suburbs where he helped raise his two children, both physicians themselves now. Jenna, a board-certified dermatologist, and Michael, a resident anesthesiologist at Northwestern University in Chicago.
In his free time, he thoroughly enjoys spending time outdoors with his family, especially in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and playing the guitar.

New patient first impression lovely office and staff. I saw Dr. Janiga he was very knowledgeable and patient with my questions and concerns. I’d Recommend this practice to anyone.
Such a great experience all around! This was my second visit within a couple months. Each person I have encountered has been so friendly and helpful! From the appointment setters, to front desk staff, to the medical assistants - everyone is great! I saw both Dr. Janiga and Stephanie Tracey, PA on my visits and I cannot say enough about them both- I have great trust in this practice! Thank you!
New patient here. I googled dermatologists near me and decided to choose Oak based on reviews. Very easy to schedule and get an appointment quickly. Entire staff was friendly and kind. I appreciate all the time Dr. Janiga spent with me and explaining everything to me. I really like this place. Highly recommend.
