ASK THE MEDICAL EXPERTS
What's involved in a thorough skin exam?
A great deal of what I do is routine skin cancer checks as it is so
important to catch cancers early. Early diagnosis is predicated on
careful expert examination.
I perform my examinations compulsively, starting with the scalp first
and working downward. I perform these examinations fairly quickly, as
I know what I am looking for. But we have to be thorough, as we know,
more mistakes are made by not looking than not knowing.
You never waste my time with false alarms, either. If something
looks wrong or strange, please get it checked as soon as possible.
When melanoma is caught in the early stages, the cure rate
approaches 100 percent.

What makes your practice different?
We are very proud of the ease with which our patients can see
us and the time we have to spend together. Our population includes
professionals, such as lawyers, accountants and physicians, as well
as busy people in all occupations. We understand how valuable
everyone’s time is. We are able to see people on the same or next
day for appointments and stay on schedule to avoid long waits.
We are also very flexible with coming in early or staying late to
accommodate our patients’ schedules.
We have a smaller, more intimate practice, which allows
availability and lengthier appointments. This gives us the time to
concentrate on maintaining patient health as well as treating disease.
We discuss recommendations (pros and cons) for screening tests,
immunizations and wellness. We advocate for our patients in the
health care system. We get timely appointments with subspecialists
when necessary, review new medications prescribed by other
physicians and gather relevant reports.
