Mary Szatkowski-Pritikin, MD
Founder and Medical Director
Dr. Mary Szatkowski-Pritikin is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist with a specialty in Oculoplastic and reconstructive surgery. She treats a broad spectrum of oculoplastic disorders, including: the diagnosis and treatment of eyelid malpositions, tearing disorders, skin cancers of the eyelids, trauma involving the eyelids, infections and inflammations. Dr. Mary received her B.S. at University of Illinois before attending Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. Growing up, Dr. Mary had always had a passion for cooking and between medical school and her residency she had written a letter to culinary idol, Julia Child. To her surprise, Julia wrote her back inviting Dr. Mary to live with her and Simone Beck in southern France to intern in classical French cuisine. After 6 months of internship with Julia, Dr. Mary returned to the states to become one of the first women accepted into Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, the #1 Eye Hospital in America. While Dr. Mary is an incredible eye surgeon, her passion for creativity and beauty lead her to San Diego to where she specialized in oculoplastic surgery.
While she is an eye and facial specialist, she has expanded her skills to body contouring and high definition body sculpting using liposuction techniques with minimal downtime.
Dr. Mary founded PritiSkin Aesthetics in 2012 with the intent of helping each patient feel and look like the most confident version of themselves. She believes in conservative practice, therefore her specialized technique allows every patient to look natural and “untouched.” She also believes that it is important for every patient to feel comfortable and confident in the hands of their doctor or injector and for that reason, all patients have the time they deem necessary to meet with Dr. Mary, discuss their concerns and develop a plan. Dr. Mary has been featured in many publications including CS Magazine’s Top Doctors of 2016.
