Skin cancer doesn’t have to be a life-changing event. In fact, with early detection, the most common types of skin cancer can be treated and eliminated, allowing you to lead a normal life. Gilchrist Aesthetic and Medical Dermatology provides expert treatment of the most common forms of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and malignant melanoma.

Our screening process is unrushed, providing each patient with a thorough physical examination and an opportunity to become educated on how to help prevent skin cancer. As a board-certified dermatopathologist, Dr. Gilchrist is able to provide a prompt microscopic examination and a thorough analysis of the underlying diseased tissue. For removal of cancerous and pre-cancerous cells, Dr. Gilchrist applies a combination of surgical, topical chemotherapy, and phototherapy options based on your individual needs and preferences.
