Dr. Yousif's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Yousif "Dr. James Yousif is a board-certified dermatologist who completed a fellowship in Mohs micrographic surgery. This specialized tissue-sparing technique removes skin cancer one layer at a time and examines it under a microscope to ensure complete removal, thus providing the highest possible cure rate. Dr. Yousif, approaches each surgery uniquely, the way an artist works on a clear canvas. After completion of the Mohs procedure, he takes meticulous care to minimize post-surgical scars and uses advanced surgical techniques to offer the best cosmetic results. Dr. Yousif is a faith-filled leader, confident with complex medical and surgical dermatology cases. He serves patients of all ages and genders and offers a genuinely attentive bedside manner. He strives to provide patient-focused care and believes his passion for Mohs surgery, surgical dermatology, and general dermatology drives him to do just that. When he is not providing his patients with the most up-to-date and evidence-based dermatology care possible, Dr Yousif enjoys participating in some of his favorite activities, which include working out, hiking, reading, and traveling.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yousif ""I try to approach each patient with the same osteopathic principles I learned in medical school. I feel it is essential to evaluate each person as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. In this way, one can really understand the effect of their disease on their daily lives, and be able to treat them in a manner that addresses all aspects of their personal health and well-being.""

Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Yousif was so attentive and informative. I thought he was great and his staff were all nice as well. I waited for about 20 minutes.. I didn’t think that seemed too long, but he even apologized for the wait.

I went to Dr Yousif in September for a procedure. He was very knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. He was very thorough in explaining what he was going to do, and what I needed to do to speed the recovery.
