Health ServicesPhysicians & Surgeons
We are excited to be your skin cancer sub-specialists and dermatologists. We see patients of all types and ages who have concerns about their skin, but our focus is on treating skin cancer and pre-cancers. There is currently an epidemic of skin cancer in the United States, with the rates of skin cancer diagnosis steadily increasing. Particularly problematic is that skin cancers can often arise in locations that are difficult to monitor like the back for men, and legs for women.
Most of the patients we see for surgery already have a diagnosis of skin cancer or pre-cancer (or atypical moles) from their doctor. Their dermatologist takes care of their general skin care needs, does regular skin checks, does biopsies and treats rashes. Sometimes, those biopsies show skin cancer, and when skin cancers are diagnosed that need more specialized types of surgery we assist with specialized types of surgery that offer the highest cure rates, with the smallest scars.
Other patients who don't have a doctor to take care of their general dermatology needs may see us for not only their specialty surgical skin care, but also for their general dermatology needs. Sub-specialty training in an ACMS and ACGME approved Mohs micrographic surgery & cutaneous oncology (skin cancer) fellowship requires full training in General Dermatology that results in board certification. One of the cornerstones of skin cancer treatment is prevention and early detection of skin cancer. That holds true if you have never had a prior skin cancer or if you have had many skin cancers in the past.
