New York City Dermatologist Julia Tzu, MD, FAAD
Dr. Julia Tzu is the founder and Medical Director of Wall Street Dermatology. She is a double board certified dermatologist in New York who specializes in Mohs (for skin cancer) and reconstructive skin surgery, laser surgery, and cosmetic dermatology. She is one of very few dermatologists in the world, and the only one in New York City, who has devoted additional years of formalized fellowship training in both Mohs surgery as well as dermatopathology, making her amongst the most highly trained and elite dermatologists. She has been practicing medicine for 14 years.
Dr. Tzu graduated at the top of her class with highest honors and Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University. She completed her medical training at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, followed by residency training at the University of Miami School of Medicine, during which time she held the highest score in the country on the nationwide in-service examination taken by all dermatology residents. She then elected to pursue additional fellowship training in dermatopathology at New York University followed by procedural dermatology (Mohs surgery) at the University of Pennsylvania, both of which are widely regarded as the nation’s most prestigious programs in the respective subspecialties.
Dr. Tzu is committed to delivering excellence in all aspects of patient care. She takes a personalized approach to skincare and seeks to achieve the best outcome with the safest, most conservative measures possible. Cosmetic procedures are performed with the highest level of artistry and precision with the most advanced minimally invasive techniques. Mohs surgery is performed with the highest level of precision in both surgical technique and interpretation of tissue specimens, the discipline (dermatopathology) of which she is distinctively board certified.
As Clinical Assistant Professor of Medicine at New York University, Dr. Tzu teaches surgical and cosmetic dermatology to resident physicians. She lectures nationally and has authored 45 scientific articles and abstracts in internationally renown scientific journals such as Nature and leading dermatology journals such as the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.
