From the front desk, to the nurses, to Dr. Pharis I found courtesy and compassion. I’m also quite pleased with the results, Dr. Pharis took important cosmetic implications into account and I’m very grateful.

The whole experience with Dr Pharis's practice was excellent. Scheduling was easy and informative. The office visit was smooth and efficient (Mohs takes a little time so bring something to read). And I got a followup call in the evening to make sure all was good. This was a great experience.
