Lewiston, ID |
I had MOHS surgery a little over two weeks ago. It is scary to go into a procedure after researching it online and seeing varying results. Since my basal cell carcinoma was on my face, I was apprehensive. Dr. Sears and his staff made the experience as pleasant as possible. After healing for ten days to two weeks the scar is so small no one notices it. I would recommend Dr. Sears and Advanced Dermatology to friends and family and plan to return if I have a similar issue in the future.
