Education & Training

Dr. Maltz earned his medical degree from the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, where he first became interested in becoming a dermatologist after spending time in the dermatology clinic. He then completed an internship at The New York Hospital-Cornell Associated Hospitals before becoming Chief Resident of the dermatology department at the University of California at San Francisco.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Maltz is skilled in both medical and cosmetic dermatology, but he has a special affinity for nonsurgical aesthetic procedures such as using dermal fillers or other injectables to help significantly improve age-related concerns expressed by his patients. "Seeing that improvement is very satisfying," says Dr. Maltz, "and that's what I get excited about."

Dr. Maltz is a member of the National Education Faculty for BOTOX® Cosmetic and the Advisory Council for RADIESSE®.

Personal Interests

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through exercise, diet, and good skin care (of course!) is important to Dr. Maltz.

Most of his free time, though, is spent with Kari and his 4 daughters.
