Before she became a renowned dermatologist in Saratoga Springs, NY, Dr. Jean Buhac actually considered pursuing a career in pathology and interviewed for a residency in that specialty. Ultimately, though, she believed that working in a lab wouldn’t really feel like being a doctor.
“I wanted to see patients. I chose to specialize in dermatology so I could combine my lifelong desire to help people with my passion for art and aesthetic beauty.”Dr. Jean Buhac
She spent about a year as a dermatologist at Albany Medical Center before opening Saratoga Dermatology in 1999. In the 20 years since opening her practice, Dr. Buhac has established a reputation for treating complex skin conditions and getting natural-looking results with anti-aging, med spa procedures.
A Well-Rounded Education
Dr. Buhac excelled academically during her undergraduate and graduate studies, earning a Bachelor’s degree in economics from Cornell University before deciding to pursue a medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine. After earning her M.D., Dr. Buhac completed an internship at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.
She finished the initial 2 years of her dermatology residency at the same Iowa institution before serving her third year of residency at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Dr. Buhac studied dermatology with experts who have written textbooks used worldwide and completed research in the area of anti-aging treatments.
“We believe that prevention, maintenance, and treatment based on science are the foundations of skin wellness.”Dr. Jean Buhac
A Hands-on Approach
As a dermatologist, Dr. Buhac takes a personal interest in the specific concerns of each patient. She’s seen thousands of patients during her 20-year career—from infants to individuals in their 80s and 90s—continuously honing her clinical expertise and creating a practice where patients feel welcome and safe. She appreciates that patients have several choices when it comes to selecting a dermatologist, and is committed to providing personalized care to them.
Dr. Buhac’s strong interest in cosmetic dermatology led her to establish the first medical spa in the Capital District area shortly after opening Saratoga Dermatology. The medical spa serves as a bridge from medical science to beauty. Dr. Buhac listens closely to the concerns patients have and how they describe their expectations and then crafts a conservative treatment plan that still addresses those concerns. For women and men who come in for cosmetic procedures, Dr. Buhac’s goal is to create results that improve their appearances but look natural.
