I got a same day appointment and great answers to all my questions. Office was very clean. I checked in and was seen even before I had a chance to sit down. So glad I didn’t have to wait in the reception area for an hour like with my old dermatologist.

About Schweiger Dermatology Group

Schweiger Dermatology Group was founded to help make excellent dermatology care accessible throughout the Northeast. In 2010, Dr. Eric Schweiger started the practice with a single location in Midtown Manhattan. When he saw the need for high-quality dermatology care that did not require weeks or months of waiting to see a qualified provider, his vision of a multi-location practice was born.
