I BEGAN MY MEDICAL TRAINING IN PSYCHIATRY AT MT. SINAI/BETH ISRAEL AND THEN MIGRATED TO AND COMPLETED A FULL RESIDENCY AND BOARD CERTIFICATION IN INTERNAL MEDICINE AT GREENWICH/YALE UNIVERSITY. I THEN CONTINUED TO UNFOLD MY DREAM BY STUDYING AND RECEIVING MY BOARD CERTIFICATION IN DERMATOLOGY AT THE PRESTIGIOUS GULF SOUTH INSTITUTE FOR MEDICAL AND SURGICAL DERMATOLOGY IN NEW ORLEANS. IT DIDNT TAKE LONG FOR ME TO FURTHER UNFOLD MY INTERESTS AND DESIRES IN DERMATOLOGY BY PURSUING FELLOWSHIP TRAINING IN DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY AND SKIN CANCER AND RECEIVING BOARD CERTIFICATION IN THAT SUBSPECIALTY FIELD BY THE DERMATOLOGIC SURGERY DIVISION OF THE AMERICAN BOARD OF COSMETIC SURGERY. IT HAS BEEN MY ABSOLUTE PLEASURE,OVER THE PAST 25 YEARS, TO HAVE THE VAST ARRAY OF TRAINING, KNOWLEDGE, AND EXPERIENCE WHICH ENABLES ME TO TREAT THE FULL PATIENT. ALL PATIENTS WITH DERMATOLOGIC CONDITIONS, IN MY OPINION, REQUIRE A "MORE THAN SKIN DEEP" APPROACH. MY PSYCHIATRY, INTERNAL MEDICINE, AND SURGICAL TRAINING ALL ENABLE ME TO PROVIDE THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF SKIN CARE. SINCERELY, IRA SCHLESINGER,MD

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Schlesinger for many years and have highly recommend him based on his medical knowledge and complete empathy for the patient. He answers all questions asked of him and we have never felt that he is rushing to get to the next patient. He truly loves what he is doing....taking good care of his patient and concern for them.

my entire experience,from making my appointment,to arriving and being greeted by courteous staff,to meeting and interacting with dr. schlesinger was excellent. i found him to be extremely well informed and educated/up to date on my illness,and at the same time,he related so well and personally to me.i still continue to see him regularly,for skin cancer prevention, even though he cured my original skin problem--he gets the absolute highest rating from me.

Excellent! Dr. Schlesinger is a warm, caring & compasionate physician. Not only is he a very knowledgable dermatologist but with his background & training in Internal Medicine, he can often identify underlying problems and will discuss them with his patients. That is what I was told by friends, and they were absolutely correct.
