Joel Schlessinger has the following 2 specialties
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

The minute you step into the office you are greeted very warmly. Front desk receptionist greets you with a smile. All of Dr. Schlesinger staff is very friendly and ready to help you. I saw Dr. Schlesinger and his assistant Jackie. Both of whom were genuinely concer6 with my problem. I would highly recommend Dr. Schlesinger to anyone.
I have been to this facility three or four times this past year. They always made me feel welcome and treated my concerns with respect. My checkup this year was with Shea. She has a genuine caring manner about her and I left feeling she had thoroughly examined my areas of concern. I cannot compare fees as I have never been to another dermatologist. I would certainly recommend this office!
I'm so glad I visited Dr. Joel Schlessinger. From the first phone call to my last visit as I was healed-it was wonderful. The staff was courteous and helpful. I can't say enough about my treatment at this office. The Dermatologist I visited before had the attitude of learn to live with it-not Dr. Joel. He tested and I now know how to avoid the problems.
Both my husband and I were very satisfied with our visit to the facility.. There was very little waiting time even though we arrived several minutes early. The staff was very thorough with our skin check which helps because we are not able to see all angles of our bodies. They were all friendly and willing to answer questions we had. I would definitely recommend this dermatology specialist.
