About Dr. J. Schwartz


Growing up in Queens and Long Island — then studying in Brooklyn and Boston — Dr. Schwartz would not have  predicted he would establish a career and private practice in Upstate New York. 


Following the advice of his late father-in-law and Troy-based orthodontist Dr. Marvin Kessler, Dr. Schwartz opened his Troy office is the summer of 1995.


Now, over 25 years later, he is proud to say he has provided care to thousands of patients from Troy and the surrounding area and now some of their children as well!


After graduating from the University of Michigan, Dr. Schwartz studied Medicine at SUNY Stony Brook. 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, Dorothy Starling PA, Alison Kortz PA., and Katie Lampert, PA.

We are here to assist you with all of your skincare needs and ensure your skin stays strong and healthy.
