    My Swedish-Scottish genes are great for herding reindeer;But, not so good for growing up in New Mexico's sun. Dr. Donald Sharp has saved me from skin cancer. Over the years He's fixed all those facial cancerous places that would not heal! He is the best Dermatologist I've ever met. I am blessed to have Him as my Doctor! He's the best of the very best. His staff is great also.
