I took my 101 year old father for a mohs procedure today. The front office staff were very friendly and efficient. I was very impressed with Dr. Pharis and his entire team! He was very pleasant, professional, patient, and through with my Dad. The nurses/assistants were attentive, competent and professional. Everything was explained throughly. Payment/copay was taken AFTER treatment...rare these days! Also, Dr. Pharis called tonight to check on Dad.

Dr. Pharis and his staff took the time to explain the procedures to me and put my mind at ease. Pleasant office and minimal wait time. He even took the time later in the evening to make sure I was feeling better. I would recommend this practice to anyone in need of skin cancer surgery.

He is an outstanding Doctor with excellent interpersonal skills. Second to none in his field.
