As a dermatologic surgeon, I specialize in skin surgery, particularly the treatment of skin cancer. Use of the Mohs micrographic surgical technique allows me to quickly utilize the microscope to assure complete removal of the cancer prior to repairing and suturing the affected area of skin. My surgical team and I strive to make each patient's experience comfortable and pleasant. Treating each individual with compassion and empathy is our goal.
