Care Philosophy

Dr. Fader performs Mohs microscopic surgery, a skin cancer removal technique which uses microscopy to remove only the cancerous tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact and unharmed. This precise method minimizes the chance of cancer re-growth, and lessens the likelihood of scarring or disfigurement.

Mohs surgery to remove basal cell carcinoma on upper lip. Excellent job. Also removed a basal cell carcinoma very near the eye for my wife a few years ago.

Great job; no discomfort; great patient care. Princess Jasman Isabell did a super job. John E. Ernest

I had a small area of skin removed on my leg. The direction of the incision was chosen nicely, and the scar is very minimal. Other dermatologists who have seen it have commented that the surgery was performed well.
in Poulsbo, WA |
I had cancer near my nose, I thought Dr. Fader may not want to close it in lieu of the better scar that could be left if a plastic surgeon closed it instead. Worst case was to have the MOHs late Friday and then have to wait until Monday to line up a closure appointment days after that. Dr. Fader assured me this would not happen so I had went ahead only to have my worst fears play out. When I finally had it closed a week later they made it much larger so it would heal, leaving a horrible scar!!!
