What People Say About Dr. Laurel Leithauser, MD

Dr. Laurel Leithauser & her staff get 5 stars (I would give 10)! They are professional, compassionate, kind, & knowledgeable. We are very fortunate to have a Dr. in Traverse City who performs the MOHS procedure. I was a patient recently & can’t say enough about how lucky I feel having found them. I would highly recommend The Skin Cancer & Dermatology Center. I call them “The A Team!”

I was referred to Dr. Leithauser because of some suspicious moles. I'm 79 and have enjoyed outside work all my life. My face was an embarrassment. Dr. Leithauser sad she would be able to help me if i was committed to a treatment plan. After a complete facial treatment re-build and MOHs surgery, I have a new baby smooth face.I would recommend Dr. Leithauser to anyone seeking a dermatologist for MOHs surgery. She rates an A++ in my book. We are lucky to have her here in Traverse city!

Dr Leithauser and her staff are very caring and capable professionals. They treated me with dignity and compassion. Dr Leithauser kept me informed and made sure that the site was clear before closing the wound. I definitely felt that they cared about my wellbeing. We had a good time talking during my visit.

I want to be sure to pass this information on to everyone I know. Dr. Leithauser is the first doctor I have gone to that gave me a suggestion of the medicine to use to clear up my granddaughters skin issues that worked. I have been to a few different doctors that turned out to be a waste of my time and money. It's so nice to know that Dr. Leithauser is around for us to see again in the future! If you don't have time or money to waste, then PLEASE go see Dr. Laurel Leithauser!

She performed my MOHS surgery on my Basil Cell Carcinoma. Appreciated how well she communicated. She clearly explained what her surgical plan was, let me know how things were going during the procedure, and discussed what she thought was the best option for closing the surgical site. She has a kind approach while still conveying a great deal of confidence in her abilities. Her assistants share the same type of attitude and are talented as well. Office offers cash discount on procedures.

Dr. Leithauser removed a basil cell cancer from my face in early December 2016. I was very impressed with her skill and professionalism not only in extracting the cancer cells but also in the excellent cosmetic repair as she sewed the wound back up. She and her assistant were very competent and friendly.

Not very friendly. Could not wait. To rush out of exam room. Can't understand why she didn't recommend other treatment. Ex.wrinkles above upper lip. Receptionist unfriendly and didn't feel respected.
