Care Philosophy

Founded as a solo practice in 1987 by Dr. Glenn Goldstein, Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, began offering the highest quality dermatologic services in the Kansas City area. It was the first practice to offer full-time Mohs micrographic surgery for the treatment of high-risk skin cancer.

Today it is recognized as one of the top treatment centers in the U.S. with 20 board-certified dermatologists, including seven fellowship trained Mohs surgeons. Over 100,000 patients pass through the doors of Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers each year, and our highly specialized medical professionals treat over 7,000 skin cancers and thousands of other dermatological conditions annually.

Using a balanced approach to general dermatology, skin cancer treatments and prevention, cosmetic skin procedures and cosmetic and aesthetic surgery of the face and body, Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers offers well-rounded service to all patients.

The expanding practice now also includes a range of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, including breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, face lifts, body contouring and more at certain locations. Providing the latest treatments in laser skin treatment, the practice is recognized as a national training center by the largest laser company in the world.

Patient Comments (4)
in Kansas City, MO |
Eventhough I didn't have a very good customer service, I had a great experience seeing Dr. Colin Ruff. He was knowledgable, attentive, gentle and a good listener. What I really liked about him is his caring attitude. He seems to actually care about his patients and not just there for money alone like a lot of doctors are. I would definitely recommend him to others ??

Very knowledgeable, kind, concerned and doesn't rush you through--takes his time when he's in the room to explain what's going and what to expect. Good listener. Very impressive!
in Lees Summit, MO |
I went to Dr. Ruff after another medical doctor was repeatedly not successful at treating me. Dr. Ruff took time to explain what was wrong, and what we needed to do for treatment. I initially called the office in Lee's Summit, Mo. That office referred me to Dr. Ruff in Leawood, Kansas, as he was reportedly handling their difficult cases. I did not get a warm fuzzy feeling from the office in Lee's Summit. I did feel very, very good about my interactions with the office in Leawood, Ks
in Paola, KS |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Ruff to anyone who is in need of his services. He is very professional and friendly. He took care of my problem quickly and professionally.
