Tips for Surgery Day


Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible during your surgical procedure. Listed below are helpful tips to help you prepare:

Information for Your Mohs Surgery:

  • You will be asked to remain for observation between stages.
  • Therefore, plan to be in our office all morning and into the afternoon.
  • Have all meals as normal, breakfast and lunch. We do recommend that you pack snacks and drinks.
  • Take all medications as normal, including aspirins and blood thinners.
  • Tell the doctor if you have any allergies to medicines or have a bleeding problem.
  • You may experience some delay due to prior surgeries.
  • Bring something to keep you occupied while your specimens are processed.
  • Wear warm socks and clothes to the office on the day of the surgery (surgical suite is kept cool).
  • Do not plan any other appointment or other activities on the day of the surgery.

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.

I needed to go in and have some skin tags removed, which were annoying at best. I was concerned about the process by which that happens, but after meeting Eric the Physician Assistant, all my fears were cast away, Lol. No seriously, they have such a great little team over there. I completely enjoyed that the office was a short ride from my job, and to my home. The staff is small and friendly. I personally love not having to sit in a room full of people and wait forever. Eric, is funny, nice, and did a fantastic job removing my skin tags. Thanks a lot!
