Introduction

I am a board certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon with more than 36 years experience. As such, I am an expert in treating all forms of skin cancer and am well versed in the potential indications, benefits, risks and contraindications for all skin cancer treatments. I have co-authored two textbooks on Mohs surgery and over 40 peer-reviewed papers. I also have 32 years of experience in procedural dermatology - including laser, chemical peels, dermal fillers, botulinum treatments, eyelid surgery and mini-face lifts. I also have experience serving as an expert witness and chart reviewer.
