Hair loss is one of the most common hair problems that we see at Park Avenue Skin Care. Both men and women can start to notice thinning hair in their teens throughout adulthood. It is important to understand the cause of your hair loss in order to find an appropriate treatment.

Coming in for treatment sooner rather than later could make all the difference in combating hair loss. In fact it’s much easier to stop hair loss than to regrow lost hair so whether it’s hair loss from infections, inflammation, allergic reactions, side effects of medication or common genetics (hereditary pattern hair loss), early diagnosis and treatment is so important.

Dr. Schultz and Park Avenue Skin Care are positioned to provide our patients with the best medical and cosmetic dermatological care. We take the time to understand your concerns, examine the affected areas, and take a full-body approach to what may be causing your hair, nail or scalp issues.

Finger and toenails can be susceptible to a number of conditions including fungal nail infections, lifting, splitting, discoloration,thickening and even bacterial infections. Many people develop problems with their nails by interacting with water frequently, getting manicures and pedicures, and even ill-fitting shoes. Other conditions, like diabetes and psoriasis, can also cause nail problems.

Those who wear ill-fitting shoes may also be at risk for ingrown nails, which is a painful condition that may require surgery. Since infectious, traumatic and inflammatory conditions of the nail can be quite uncomfortable, Dr. Schultz has developed special expertise in helping patients with these issues.

Dandruff is a common scalp problem that many people experience, regardless of age or gender. These dry flakes can show through your hair as well as on your clothes, no matter how much you wash your hair or avoid touching it.

Conditions like psoriasis and hypothyroidism can also affect the scalp, causing brittle hair, hair loss, and dry patches. Problems with the scalp can cause discomfort whether it’s tormenting itching or pain, making it all the more important to see a specialist at Park Avenue Skin Care to ensure that you’re getting a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

With over 35 years of experience, Dr. Schultz has worked with thousands of patients to help them with their hair, nail, and scalp problems. From parasites to hair loss to nail infections and more, Dr. Schultz has developed special expertise in treating these conditions. Starting with a thorough physical examination, Dr. Schultz will get an understanding of what you're experiencing.

You will be able to discuss your symptoms, history, and concerns in an open discussion so that all of your questions are answered. You may need to undergo blood work or have a scalp biopsy or culture in order to definitively determine your diagnosis. Once you have a diagnosis, you can start on the path to feeling better with a comprehensive treatment plan.

Patient Reviews

I've been seeing Dr. Schultz for the last 8 years and during that time, I've recommended him to countless friends for both cosmetic and medical dermatologic help. I trust him completely both diagnostically and aesthetically. When I had shingles, he was wonderful, incredibly supportive and kind. And when I eased into doing more cosmetic dermatology, he was– and continues to be– patient, careful and cautious. He listens to concerns and really hears what your goal outcome is and works with you to make it happen. I wanted to maintain a natural look while keeping my skin looking fresh and that's just what he's done for me. I always leave his office feeling prettier and well-cared for! If you have a medical concern or something about your skin you want to upgrade, you can't do better than Dr. Schultz and his wonderful team. And the products are amazing as well!

Dr. Schultz is the most thorough and good natured dermatologist I have ever seen. I have been a patient of his for more than 20 years. He has taught me everything I know about the value of taking care of my skin, a gift that keeps on giving. He also takes the time to listen to me, to see me as an individual and doesn't treat my needs as a one size fits all doctor. I really appreciate his kindness, patience and expertise. I absolutely love his product line and have definitely reaped the rewards from using it, especially his glycolic peel pads and moisturizer, which I can't live without. My skin feels softer, smoother, appears more translucent and actually looks younger! He helped me to see beyond the lines and wrinkles, although he so good at helping to keep those at bay while maintaining a very natural appearance. His staff is outstanding. They make you feel welcome, like family, from the moment you walk through the door. Angela, Monika, Deborah and all of the support staff are extraordinary at what they do. Thank you Dr. Schultz and everyone at Park Ave Skincare. You're the best!

Dr. Schultz has truly transformed my skin, so much so that I can confidently leave the house without wearing makeup now. During my first meeting with him, he intently listened to my skin concerns, we discussed what my goals were, and he explained pragmatically what treatments and products he recommended for me. I truly appreciate his fantastic bedside manner and conservative approach. I am a perfectionist in every aspect of my life, including my skin, and he understood this and was committed to helping me achieve every skin goal I had. The entire staff is just so fantastic and friendly, from reception to the PAs. They make you feel welcome and extremely comfortable, which to me is very important when visiting any doctor’s office. As someone who works too much and never gets enough sleep, my skin was looking very dull and lifeless. My skin is now full of life again and has an incredible glow to it which I have never had before. And I owe it all to the incredible Dr. Schultz.

My partnership with Dr Schultz began more than 30 years ago. As a generous friend, advisor, skilled surgeon, and superb cosmetic diagnostician, he has enabled me to look my best. He has kept me abreast of the most sophisticated procedures and in so doing, has maximized my appearance, always guided by what will be most beneficial for me. He is someone I go to for advice and care and his staff is another manifestation of this care. I don’t know many patients who can say this, and I feel fortunate to be among them.

In the four years that I've been a patient of Dr. Schultz, my acne-prone skin has gone from constant breakouts to smooth and clear. These days, I feel confident and comfortable enough in my skin to wear minimal makeup, if any—which I never would have done in years past. He and his warm, friendly staff always go above and beyond; he takes the time to listen, talk with me, and create the best plan for my skin. It's clear he has my best interests in mind, and I trust him wholeheartedly. I would highly recommend him to friends, family, and frankly, anyone who asks.

Each session with Dr. Schultz is a mini education in skin care. He approaches each patient as a unique individual with different needs. I’m Asian and he’s explained to me how that impacts treatment in a clear manner that a layperson can understand. At each examination, he recites detailed notes to his staff which he then refers back to at each future appointment, adjusting and tweaking treatment plans when necessary. Over the past two years I’ve seen a remarkable improvement in my blemishes and overall complexion and wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking to enhance their appearance.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schultz for many years, and I continue to be amazed at his medical approach, patience, and professionalism. He takes the time to listen to my health concerns, explains how and why he would like to issue a treatment in a way that I understand , answers all of my questions, and all of his procedures and painless and thorough. He is very attentive, results-oriented, and extremely knowledgeable. He follows up and is committed to my health and satisfaction. The Park Avenue Skincare is a calm environment and the staff are all very friendly, warm, and respectful. It's easy to get appointments at a time that works for me and they are always on time and considerate. I think so highly of him and his practice that I sent my mom to him, and continue to go to his office even though my life is based in midtown west! I have great confidence in the care that he gives.
