Skin Cancer Surgeons
We offer a full range of both clinical and cosmetic services to keep our patients' skin, hair and nails healthy and attractive. Our nationally recognized MOHS micrographic skin cancer surgeon has more than 25 years of experience, and we have served as Orlando's preferred skin cancer surgery center. Now, we proudly offer a non-surgical approach using low-energy radiation to treat non-melanoma skin lesions and tumors.
NOTE: This cutting-edge skin cancer treatment is performed in one of our in-office laboratories, which is subject to stringent quality and personnel requirements established by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA). The practice is also proud to be a College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited laboratory.
In addition to our superficial radiation therapy, surgical excisions of melanoma, skin tumors, cancers, benign moles and skin lesions, we offer a number of general dermatological therapies. We treat common conditions such as allergic dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, eczema and disease of the hair and nails using the latest technologies and skincare products.
Our doctors, nurse practitioners and aestheticians also perform a variety of cosmetic procedures that include injections for Botox® and dermal fillers as well as medical strength chemical peels, electrocautery and acne treatments.

The staff were great! Sorry I don't recall all names. I found them to be very professional and made the process of "cutting" on my ear pretty relaxing. My only question was that I was prescribed 5 pain pills to cover pain for the next 30 hours, yet was not given a Dr's excuse to miss work the following day. Thus I assume they felt it was ok to go to work under the influence of Hydrocodone :) All in all I would highly recommend the staff and Dr's at the Sand Lake office!
