Meet Keloid Specialist, Dr. Michael Tirgan

Michael TirganMichael Tirgan, MD, is a specialist in the treatment of Keloid Disorder. He is also a board certified internist and oncologist. He began seeing keloid patients through his oncology practice and soon realized the need for highly trained specialists to treat this deeply misunderstood and complex disorder of the skin.

In 2008, Dr. Tirgan began focusing his practice on the non-surgical treatment of keloid and now limits his practice solely to the treatment of individuals with this disorder.

Dr. Tirgan is an attending physician at Mount Sinai St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital and Rockefeller University Hospital in New York, NY. He is also a clinical instructor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

He takes the time to understand the unique circumstances of each of his patients and creates a treatment plan that is tailored to each person's particular needs.

This is how some of our patients describe Dr. Tirgan

World Class

Matt R. says: Dr. Tirgan is in a class of his own and a true example to every other practicing MD. In addition to his incredible knowledge of Keloids, as well as other medical matters, he genuinely cares for his patients and demonstrates both concern and compassion to what his patients are going through. His treatments work and they are proven through multiple testimonies. My facial keloids have shown significant improvement and I put 100% trust in his recommended actions. For anyone considering the cost of treatment or travel expense to come to NY, you should not give it a second thought as you will find no other MD that is in his league.


Raffaela M. says: Besides being a professional and great at what he does he is one of the kindest most gentle person that I have ever met. I have been taking my son to see him and my son loves going to him because he shows genuine interest in him. I only wish that every doctor could be just like him. The medical field would be a better place. He is wonderful professionally and personally! He is perfect!
