About Me

Same Care and Services, New Location!

Dr. Justin Schweitzer now sees patients at Cooper University Health Care in Cherry Hill. Whether you are in need of traditional primary care services, or LGBTQ+ health care, Dr. Schweitzer is here for you.

Dr. Schweitzer is a family physician who provides comprehensive care for acute and chronic medical needs and works to create an open, judgment-free atmosphere for patients to share their concerns. His top priority is promoting a healthy lifestyle among his patients and their families to prevent or minimize illness and other medical conditions. He has worked collaboratively to increase access of care to LGBTQ+ identifying patients in southern New Jersey. 

Services currently offered are PrEP for HIV prevention, STD testing, sexual health counseling, and gender-affirming hormone therapy (GAHT). 

In his free time, Dr. Schweitzer enjoys spending time with his husband and retired greyhound as well as traveling, cooking foods from the local Farmer's Market, and practicing yoga.
