This outpost of Schweiger manages to maintain everything I liked about the Manhattan locations but in a smaller, more intimate form. I’ve never had to wait long for my appointments, as the majority start on or even before the scheduled time. Shivani Thakker, PA-C and her team are personable and knowledgeable. The top 40 hits playing on the sound system add to the relaxed feel. Visiting a doctor is never really fun but an appointment here is an exception to the rule!


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.
