Bill Sangster recommends Lady Lake Dermatology & Mohs Surgery, The Villages. Yesterday at 2:05 PM · From the moment I stepped foot into your office until I walked out the front door, I was greeted by professional clerks, spoken to by caring intake professionals, and treated by a friendly and personal doctor who was both informative and understanding to my situation. I would not hesitate to recommend your clinic to anyone who needed to see a Dermatologist. Please take these comments as my thank you to all of you for your help.

"Great, based on my cousins recommendation I was very confident that my concerns would be addressed with the upmost care and professionalism. Well, it exceeded my expectations, from the front office staff all the way to the Dr. Gurgen. Everyone was very friendly and eager to assist in any way possible. All procedures leading to the surgery were explained and questions answered. I am very happy with the outcome of the surgery. I will return for future skin cancer screenings with Dr. Gurgen."

Ricardo Benitez – Nov 11, 2019
I recently moved to this area and needed to continue yearly skin exams. I’m so glad I found this place. Everyone was very pleasant and explained exactly what they were doing. John Kelly did a thorough exam and found I needed 2 biopsy’s. I needed Mohs surgery on my nose, but was caught early. Dr. Gurgen performed the surgery and did a wonderful job, got it all on the first round. His staff are very compassionate making sure I was comfortable physically and mentally. I highly recommend Dr. Gurgen and his staff at Leesburg Dermatology and Mohs Surgery.

Bert Coble aka John – Oct 27, 2019
I have had only positive experiences with this practice, from the front desk to the last suture. I have been going here for 3 or 4 years now and Michael does an excellent and thorough skin exam; if he has any doubts, he takes the cautious approach and biopsies. I have had one pre-cancer frozen off, numerous other spots zapped, and now 4 basal cancers removed, all without any issues other than one on my shoulder developed some scar tissue, which they addressed without further charge to me. I completely trust the staff here and how they operate.

Laura – Oct 27, 2019
Routine follow-on check after having several benign moles frozen. I was seen precisely at my scheduled time, the staff were welcoming and efficient. I received a comprehensive checkup, including areas I had questions about. The explanations I received were in terms I could easily understand. I was advised of changes, if observed, should be brought to the attention of the Doctor without waiting for a schedules appointment. Overall, I feel comfortable with this practice and would (and have) recommend them to friends

I do not know when I have had a better experience interacting with a medical team. I can sum up my experience with Dr Gurgen and Dr Kelly in two words: Competent & Caring. They have a very professional staff and a first rate facility. They are rendering a literally lifesaving service to the community at a very high level of expertise. Highly recommend this group.
