Dr. Zack Charkawi is a very unique practitioner. He has been in the medical field since 2000 and is a Board-Certified Family Physician and an Associate Member of The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery. As a graduate from Ross University and a graduate of Wheeling Hospital, he trained in an unopposed program that gave him unmatched exposure and allowed him to focus his attention on procedural medicine and dermatology. Dr. Charkawi sub-specialized in dermatology for the family at Wheeling Hospital and gradually mastered surgical procedures for urgent care and emergency room settings. He relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio where he worked in an urgent care facility part-time and served at Health Point Family Care in Covington, Kentucky. The shortage of skin specialists and surgeons in the area allowed Dr. Charkawi to diagnose and treat skin conditions such as acne, warts, eczema, psoriasis, and skin infections. It allowed him to manage benign lesions and skin cancers surgically as well. Dr. Charkawi served as assistant professor in Louisville University during this journey.

Dr. Charkawi’s passion for procedural dermatology blossomed during his 10 years of service at Johns Creek Dermatology, where he is one of four providers serving our wonderful community. He has treated and resected all types of skin growths and skin cancers. He has worked up and managed conditions side by side with the dermatologist and many skin conditions related to other medical problems as well. His understanding of general medicine is invaluable for dermatology.  Dr. Charkawi has expanded his knowledge and expertise through the years by attending highly specialized conferences.

Building on our expertise in hair and passion for managing and diagnosing hair loss, he founded our hair loss restoration unit. This unit offers cutting edge treatments for hair loss for men and women of all ages.

Patients find Dr. Charkawi easy to talk to, very attentive, caring, and a thorough spot-on clinician. Men in particular feel very comfortable discussing their anti-aging needs as well. 

Why does it matter if your doctor is Board Certified?

Patients and the medical community recognize board certification as a higher standard. Board certification is a significant achievement that not all doctors attain. Board certified doctors:

• Up to date with knowledge and research

• Practices within the confines of the standard of care

• Maintains education

• Meets higher standards than licensed doctors
