At a whopping 16 square feet, your skin is your body’s largest organ. It is literally your shield from the dangers of the outside world, guarding against injury, controlling body temperature and preventing infection.

Our Dermatologists help protect your skin so that your skin can protect you. Because skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, including the most deadly form melanoma, we recommend regular skin checks to nip any threat in the bud and to help keep small problems from turning into big ones.

If you do need treatment, we offer the most advanced procedures, including Mohs surgery, a revolutionary in-office surgical procedure for removing skin cancer. Mohs (Mohs micrographic surgery) is the most successful treatment of skin cancer ever developed. With cure rates exceeding 99% for many cancers, it has the highest cure rate of any skin cancer treatment. The risk that a cancer will grow back following Mohs surgery is also 10 to 40 times less than with other types of treatment.

Perhaps best of all, Mohs surgery can achieve these higher cure rates with smaller, less destructive techniques, and can be performed right in the doctor’s office using local anesthetic. This can add up to better health and lower total costs.
