We emphasize early detection and removal of skin cancers and precancerous lesions. Recommendations for the frequency of skin cancer screenings vary among task forces and professional societies, but we generally recommend that you visit your dermatologist at least once yearly if:

  • You have been diagnosed with skin cancer or precancerous lesions in the past
  • You have a family history of skin cancer
  • You have atypical moles
  • You are more than 50 years old
  • You are immunosuppressed

We also treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, hair loss, nail diseases, and a variety of less common skin problems.
