About Dr. Jason Chouake:

 

Dr. Jason Chouake is a Board Certified Dermatologist in medical and cosmetic dermatology, training for thousands of hours with both hospital and office patients in every aspect of dermatology. Dr. Chouake has performed treatments and procedures varying from aesthetic and cosmetic changes to life-saving dermatologic procedures. Coming from a family of medical practitioners, he grew up with a love of science that bloomed naturally into an aptitude for medicine and the desire to help people. Thanks to seeing how his parents interacted with their patients while he was growing up, Dr. Chouake values the relationship between physician and patient, and how that relationship can help move the patient's life in a positive direction.

 

Dr. Chouake has been happily married for 13 years, and he and his wife have 5 children. He loves having a large family and enjoys taking road trips with them whenever possible. He enjoys a wide range of hobbies including playing guitar and Japanese embroidery and even did some beekeeping throughout his years of medical school and residency.

 

His residency was completed in New York, in a highly competitive program that he is proud to have been a part of, calling it one of the best medical dermatology programs in the country. Right now, he's glad to be back at Cliffside, where he once worked as a teenager, doing everything at the time from working the front desk to filing papers. Now he's back as a practicing physician, working to ensure every patient feels well taken care of.

 

“When people come in and they look and feel a certain way about their appearance, we are able to easily turn that around in a minimal amount of time. Patients walk out so light and happy and feeling so good about themselves. It’s amazing to be a part of that process. When a procedure or treatment is done right and the results look natural, when someone looks and feels beautiful, it is a wonderful thing to be a part of that.” - J. Chouake, M.D. Dermatology.
