What to expect from your appointment

We examine your skin and review of your health history. We also check for immunosuppressive medications, and prior sun exposure and skin cancer history. We address any suspected skin cancers. Then, based on the information, we create a tailored plan for you.

We treat current skin cancers by the least invasive methods, such as:

  • Electrodessication and curettage (ED&C)
  • Surgical excision or treatment by Mohs surgery

We discuss ways to reduce other skin cancer, including:

  • Sun protective measures
  • Use of field therapy
  • Prophylactic oral treatments

We then plan for follow-up appointments for regular skin examinations.
