Dr. Weitzbuch is an award-winning, board certified dermatologist and member of the American Society for Mohs Surgery. He specializes in diagnosing and treating diseases, tumors, infections and age-related changes of the skin, hair, and nails. Dr. Weitzbuch received a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University, followed by a Master’s Degree in Applied Physiology at the Chicago Medical School, where he also went on to obtain his Medical Degree. He then undertook a one-year internship working at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, training exclusively in surgery. After successfully finishing a dermatology residency at the famed Cook County Hospital, he completed specialty training with an extended Mohs surgery preceptorship.
Always looking at the world as if through the lens of a camera, Dr. Weitzbuch has an eye for the subtleties of subjects. His passion for photography and vast training in Cosmetic and Aesthetic Surgery combine to provide his patients extraordinary results beyond their expectations. Dr. Weitzbuch has presented at numerous national and local meetings, and has published in multiple peer-reviewed journals. He has obtained a patent and grant for prior research and has been the recipient of many awards throughout his extensive career.
A Calabasas native, Dr. Weitzbuch completed his formative education at Calabasas High School, A. E. Wright Middle School, and Round Meadow Elementary. Funny enough, his wife did as well, but they didn’t meet until much later in life at just the right time! After 12 years of training in Chicago, Dr. Weitzbuch is excited about re-immersing his life in Southern California and the local community.
