The best dermatologist I have been to and having had over 50 cases of skin cancer, I can speak from experience. He has the best skills and bedside manner possible. You will not find better doctor. I trust him completely. I am so gIad I moved o Syracuse and found him.
Syracuse, NY |
Excellent surgeon. I am so impressed with Dr. Housel after having Mohs surgery. He is truly amazing. I had one surgery at another office for skin cancer in Syracuse and still have a terrible scar. No one can tell that I just had surgery on my face two months ago.
Syracuse, NY |
I had a 6m follow up appt, I never recv'd a confirm. call, After receiving a bill for a no show fee I called the office to ask if they still make confirm. calls they said it was an automated system I asked to speak to supervisor since I had never rcv'd a call, & stated I will provide phone records to prove so. When a "supervisor" got on she never gave her name her exact words were "We can waive this fee for you, but you will need to find another dermatologist." Just unbelievable/unprofessional.

Dr. Housel was professional and cordial . He listened to me and gave me information that was accurate and non threatening about my diagnosis. I would recommend him to all .

I went to Dr. Housel for Mohs surgery on my face and he did an excellent job. I was very anxious about how it would look after the procedure. I am so happy to say that all of my friends and family comment on how how great I look. Noone can tell that I had anything done. I would recommend him to anyone that needs surgery for skin cancer.
Syracuse, NY |
Doctor is easy to talk to, he took care of things in very professional matter. Really pleased with surgery and especially the wound care. He is true professional. Would recommend to every one.

Dr. Housel says...

Dr. Housel is a fellowship trained Mohs Micrographic and Reconstructive Surgeon. The American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) fellowship is an additional course of study for 1 to 2 years. During the fellowship, dermatologists are trained to excise skin cancer and create precisely-oriented microscopic maps, read slides made from removed tissue, and repair the surgical defect which involves exposure to and development of a wide repertoire of reconstructive techniques.  Dr. Housel received this training at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, one of ten cancer institutes in the nation.  While at Roswell Dr. Housel was involved in the treatment of large and rare tumors.  Dr. Housel worked with many reconstructive specialists including plastic surgeons and surgical oncologists.

During the fellowship, each surgeon in training must participate in a minimum of 500 cases under the supervision of a Mohs college approved, fellowship trained instructor (surgeon).
