Dermatologist Dr. Joseph Schwartz is Available Wednesdays and Fridays
“Dermatology encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the skin, hair, and nails. But we understand that problems that affect the outside of the body can have a profound effect on one’s overall wellbeing. From the skin manifestations of systemic diseases to the stress associated with common skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis, our mission is to treat the entire individual in order to promote the greatest state of health and well being.”– Joseph Schwartz, MD August 2015
Growing up in Queens, Long Island and studying in Brooklyn and Boston, Dr. Schwartz would not have predicted he would establish a career and private practice in Troy, NY. Following the advice of his late father-in-law and Troy orthodontist Dr. Marvin Kessler, he opened his office is the summer of 1995. Now over 20 years later he is proud to say he has provided care to thousands of patients from Troy and the surrounding area. He now treats some of their children as well.
After graduating from the University of Michigan, Dr. Schwartz studied Medicine at SUNY Stonybrook. His post-graduate studies are extensive, completing an internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center, Dermatology at SUNY Brooklyn and Boston University, as well as completing a fellowship in skin cancer at Memorial Sloan-Kettering in Manhattan.
Dr. Schwartz is grateful for the support of the local community of physicians, his devoted office staff, and his accomplished coworkers, Karen Royston, NP, Jordan Roberts, PA-C and Dorothy Starling, RPA-C.
