Dr. Schultz and I had been trying to get together for so many weeks that when we actually met I forgot what we were supposed to meet about (eep…). I walked into our meeting at Sarabeth’s mid a torrential downpour frantically checking my phone trying to find our initial email – I shouldn’t have bothered because when it comes to anything dermatology-related Dr. Schultz is an endless wealth of knowledge. Unlike what you might expect from someone who has been repeatedly featured within the “Best Doctors” lists in New York Magazine, everything about him is approachable. So much so in fact that a few years ago he started a website, dermtv.com, that now has somewhere around 500 videos in which the doctor in about a minute or so gives his take on pretty much every skincare issue you can think of (and a ton you never thought of…). Want to know the average age of someone who gets Botox? Want to know why exfoliation is so important? You can find out along with about 498 other things!
Given his pedigree – he received his M.D. degree from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia where he was elected to AOA, the national medical honor’s society, and then completed his residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. In his third year, he was appointed chief resident – it’s all the more impressive how easy going and approachable Dr. Schultz is. He sees over 10,000 patients a year and if you happen to live in the NYC area I can’t think of a doctor I’ve met that seems more reliable. On the cosmetic front he also has an extensive line of skincare. He gave me a few products (he believes that chemical exfoliation is the key to great skin so I just started using one of his glycolic products), and will report back!
