Patient Reviews (4)
Dr. Lahti is extremely knowledgeable and caring, as is his whole staff! I consider myself extremely lucky that he was recommended to me for Mohs surgery.

I had a small cancerous spot removed from my leg yesterday afternoon. Last night, Dr. Lahti called me, personally, to see how I was doing! I was so surprised that he took the time to call me! It was such a small spot but he still followed up on my condition! What a wonderful surprise! This kind of concern is very rare! Not many doctors would take the time to call their patients after a procedure, but he did, even after a minor one! I'll be singing his praises for a long time! Thank you!

I had basal cell cancer on my face, from the right side of my nose, to under my right eye and down to the bottom of my cheek. Dr. Lahti performed surgery on it, and for a couple of months I looked like the lead in Phantom of the Opera. Once all of the coverings were removed, you couldn't tell there had been surgery or anything else done to my face. People were amazed, when I told them that I had a serious surgery done, just a few months before. He is the best that can be found!

I HAVE SEEN DR LAHTI FOR A BASAL CELL CANCER NEAR MY LOWER EYELID. HE HAS EXPLAINED WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AND WHAT TO EXPECT. HE SPENT A GOOD AMOUNT OF TIME FOR EXPLANATION AND QUESTIONS.. VERY PLEASANT MANNER
