Schweiger Dermatology Group recently announced it had completed the acquisition of Orange County Dermatology Associates whose offices are in Monroe and Warwick.
Schweiger Dermatology Group is the largest group dermatology practice in the Northeast with more than 57 offices and approximately 190 health care providers.
SDG provides both medical and cosmetic dermatology services to more than 600,000 patients annually.
It has been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America as well as the Crain's New York Fast 50, honoring the fastest growing companies in New York for 2017 and 2018.
Orange Dermatology Associates, PC, a dermatology and dermatologic surgery group practice, was founded in 1973.
It has three board certified dermatologists: Joseph G. Tuchman, Steven Wolinsky and Sammy A. Hutman; and four certified physician assistants specializing in dermatology: Dawn Barilli, Avraham Sokoloff, Amy L. Andrews and Lauren Dietz.
"We're thrilled to welcome the Orange Dermatology providers and staff to the Schweiger Dermatology Group family," said Dr. Eric Schweiger, founder and C.E.O. "With our reputation for outstanding patient care, we think Orange Dermatology is a perfect match for SDG as we continue to partner with top practices in our region."
Tuchman, the founder of Orange County Dermatology, earned his medical degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. He completed his medical internship at Brookdale Hospital Center in New York and his residency in dermatology at the Tufts New England Medical Center in Boston.
Wolinsky, who joined the practice as a partner in 1984, earned his medical degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He completed his internship in general surgery at Montefiore Hospital and Medical Center and his residency in dermatology at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York.
"I had heard from other doctors how Schweiger Dermatology Group really supports their providers," he said. "Joining Schweiger relieves us of the administrative headaches we've encountered over the past ten years so our providers can focus on patient care. It's extremely gratifying to be able to treat the children and grandchildren of our patients, and we look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come."
Orange County Dermatology offices are located at 42 High St. in the Village of Warwick (986-6999) and 503 State Route 208 in Monroe (783-2920).
