Dr. Schlesinger's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Schlesinger "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"
