where medical expertise meets wellbeing

At Vanguard Dermatology, we believe in treating people, not just their skin. How? By focusing on both equally — with cutting-edge solutions to common skin issues and just-enough cosmetic enhancement, all in an environment that feels more like a spa than a hospital.

from our patients

One of the best doctors I have ever been to and ever seen.

Though the waiting time today was longer than usual (Dr. Shapiro had some surgeries done on other patients), the waiting time was worthwhile as I think he is one of the best MDs I ever went to: the best bedside manner, extreme professional knowledge, quick take on things, very detailed approach to a patient’s problem, very meticulous follow-up. One of the best doctors I have ever been too and ever seen. Really cares about patients. Excellent education, manners, knowledge – absolutely perfect in every aspect of care – 1000% !!!

Dr. Shapiro should be commended for his knowledge, professionalism and compassion. His staff was courteous and attended to every detail of my procedure. I plan to continue with him as my dermatologist for all my future needs.

Why More Men Should Visit a Dermatologist

"For a guy’s first visit to the dermatologist, it is recommended to prepare for the appointment by performing a self-body check and to take note of any moles, scars, or other concerning areas of skin to bring up to the doctor. Men should also be prepared to answer a variety of questions, including what medications they are currently taking, family history, previous skin issues, and more. By being prepared and knowing as much as you can, the dermatologist can provide you with the best treatment for your case." — Dr. Michael Shapiro

Do You Sweat More Than Normal?

Each and every hour, the average girl sweats five ounces—enough to fill a wine glass, says Michael Shapiro, M.D., medical director of Vanguard Dermatology in New York. And that’s before you factor in scorching temps, stress, and killer workouts.
