Heather Struhl

Heather Struhl, PA-C, RD is a NCCPA Board Certified New York State licensed physician assistant and registered dietitian who specializes in plastic surgery, with a focus on injectable treatments and laser therapies.

Prior to her physician assistant studies, she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Sciences at The Pennsylvania State University with a minor in psychology while working in a research laboratory under Dr. Penny Kris-Etherton. The Metabolic Diet Study Center’s main focus was examining the effects of nuts on lowering LDL and raising HDL cholesterol. She then went on to complete a dietetic internship at Stony Brook University and in 2009 earned a degree as a Registered Dietitian (RD).

Heather earned her certification in physician assistant studies at Long Island University in 2011. She completed clinical rotations at Beth Israel medical Center and Bellevue Medical Center in Manhattan, Northwell Health LIJ, The Brooklyn Hospital Center, and Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center. She completed a Surgical Physician Assistant Residency Program in 2012 at Geisinger Medical Center completing rotations in plastic and reconstructive surgery, trauma surgery, cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, general surgery, orthopedic surgery and sports medicine, and the ICU.

Heather’s interest in health and medicine started at a young age in part to her father, a board certified cardiologist on Long Island. She grew up admiring his ethics and passion for patient care, which inspired her to focus her studies in science, healthcare, and medicine. Heather strives to improve the lives of her patients by encouraging self-care, eating nutritiously, and following a proper skincare and exercise routine. Additionally, she believes that maintaining one’s outward appearance is the final component to the ideal approach to a happy and healthy lifestyle, which Heather follows and works to instill in her patients.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual ConsultationAt-Home Skincare


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated April 23, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we have been closed since March 19th and will continue to close the practice until June 1st.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until May 15th.
  • Key staff members are working remotely to provide clinical patient support and re-scheduling options
  • Only urgent post-surgical follow-ups will be seen by Dr. Westreich and full PPE will be worn. These will be decided on a case by case basis and limited to 1 patient at a time.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • All elective surgeries are rescheduled until after May 15th
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. When we reopen to patients, we will continue to follow these practices. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • We are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
