Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Protect yourself by limiting your exposure to the sun and getting skin cancer screenings. Have us check any suspicious skin markings and any changes in the way your skin looks. Treatment is best when cancer is found early. Some types of skin cancer have the potential to spread to other tissues and organs. To read more about skin cancer click on the skin cancer information box on the left.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery
Mohs micrographic surgery is a very precise, highly detailed technique whereby small layers of skin are removed and immediately examined under a microscope until the samples indicate that the skin cancer is completely removed. It offers the highest possible cure rates while removing as little normal skin as possible. This technique results in the best cosmetic outcome with minimal scarring.

Rosacea
Rosacea is a common skin condition that affects all skin colors and skin types, but is more common in those with fair skin.  It usually occurs in adults age 30 and older and is more common in women than men.  Most people with rosacea experience redness, and many experience chronic and recurring flushing, thickening of the skin with a bumpy texture or acne like breakouts.  Some people will also experience ocular rosacea in which the eyes are affected and a referral to the ophthalmologist may be necessary.
