If you are on a managed care plan, please confirm that we have received a referral and prior authorization for your visit.

What Your Visit Will Be Like

On your first visit, we examine your skin cancer, review your medical history and answer your questions. We will also review the pathology report of your skin cancer, give you pre-operative instructions, take measurements and photos of your Mohs surgery site for the Mohs procedure. 

We always keep your referring physician informed of your treatment and date of surgery.

To learn more about the procedure, read our information about preparing for surgery and a description of Mohs surgery.

 

After the Mohs Procedure

Your cancer-removal journey is not over at the end of the outpatient procedure; all patients must take time to heal and properly care for the treated area to ensure that it has the best outcome possible. We will provide detailed post-operative instructions personalized for your specific case, depending on the size and depth of the affected area, and may refer you to a specialist for additional treatment.

We will also schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor the progress of your healing. View more details about post-op activity here.
