Provider Recruitment

Apex is a special place to practice dermatology. Our culture is unique because we have drawn caring individuals into the practice who are driven by one common purpose: to transform lives through healthy skin. At Apex, we transform people’s lives through our work. Whether making a patient cancer-free, clearing a patient of psoriasis, or improving acne of a teenage patient, we give people the ability to take control of their lives by helping them maintain healthy and vibrant skin. Knowing the impact of our work motivates me every day. 

Before starting Apex, patients were frustrated when they had to wait months to see me or spend hours in the office for their scheduled appointment. I was frustrated, too. My vision for Apex is to create a friendly, engaging, and empowering environment where patients are treated like family. I’m proud to say that Apex operates efficiently, and our clinic runs on time, every day. Less waiting and less run around. 

Our staff is committed to delivering what I call a “rock star” experience. Our services are comprehensive, and we proactively address every patient concern in our clinic. Every one of our offices is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and a modern, safe, and thoughtfully designed Mohs lab. Our dermatologists are supported with well-trained clinical staff, which allows them to focus on their work and thoroughly care for their patients. We want our patients to leave our offices feeling great and equipped with a full game plan. 

Our commitment to deliver comforting and impactful patient experiences makes Apex the best Northeast Ohio has to offer in dermatology.

History of our Practice

Dr. Jorge Garcia-Zuazaga completed his MOHS Micrographic Surgery Fellowship at Harvard in 2008 after serving as a decorated US Marines Flight Surgeon. He served as Director of MOHS Surgery/ Aesthetic Dermatology at University Hospitals Department of Dermatology. Shortly after earning his MBA at Case Western Reserve University, he founded Apex in 2011 in Concord. Ohio.

As the practice grew, Dr. Garcia-Zuazaga expanded his team to include a staff that, like him, focuses on patients over paperwork. Today, Apex is run by a world-class team of healthcare professionals and executive management who take pride in their work and never forget the guiding principles that brought the practice to life.
