Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and continues to increase in incidence. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common forms of non-melanoma skin cancer with an estimated 3.5 million cases diagnosed annually. Melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer occurs in one in fifty five Americans and has the greatest propensity to spread or metastasize if not detected early.
Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized technique most commonly used for the removal of nonmelanoma skin cancer. It is performed by a highly trained physician who assumes the role of dermatologic surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon. This meticulous skin cancer removal and microscopic analysis technique provides the highest cure rate and removes the least amount of normal, uninvolved skin around the tumor, thereby limiting scarring and enhancing the potential for a better cosmetic outcome.

When I first came to see you many years ago, I told you that I wanted my skin to look good enough to be comfortable to not have to always wear makeup. I've achieved that. But this is a thank you for giving me skin that I'm always complimented on. It's amazing that all the $$ invested in your office really do pay off.Cherie W - DR. PRICE’ S PATIENT

The children from Guatemala called me to get you a "Bear Card" so you could get a "Bear Hug" from them. You will never know how much your donations of the medication and sun tan lotion helped the children from the city days in Guatemala City and in the mountains of Antigua. So please consider yourself hugged.Pat L - DR. PRICE’ S PATIENT
