All of our professionals at University Dermatology, Inc. and SKINPros, LLC maintain the highest level of accreditation to offer the highest quality care to each and every patient.
Our receptionists will schedule your appointments, register your materials and mail you a questionnaire and brochure.
These caring nurses have decades of combined experience in Mohs surgery. They assist in consultations, evaluation, patient education and as surgical assistants. They are available to answer any questions you may have about the procedure and post-operative care.
Our units employs two full-time Mohs technicians that are American Socierty for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) certified. They process tissue in our state-of-the-art lab, which is inspected annually by state and federal organizations such as Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).
Residents and Medical Students
Medical students have a mostly observational role in the unit. Our residents and fellows are specifically involved with the evaluations and assisting in surgery. This is part of our mission as a teaching program. However, the attending physician is involved in all key aspects of your care.
Our Mohs Surgeons are Board Certified Dermatologists and Fellowship Trained Skin Cancer and Reconstructive Surgeons
