Dr. Bax preformed Moh’s surgery on a Basal Cell Carcinoma on my scalp. Dr. Bax and his nurse answered all my questions and was very attentive to my needs. I asked many questions before the procedure and he explained everything without feeling you were rushed. The procedure went well with no pain. Hoping healing will go well.

I recently saw Dr. Bax for an excision of a basal cell skin cancer. The procedure was quick and painless. The incision is healing well and is unlikely to leave a noticeable scar. My experience with the entire staff in the dermatology clinic at RPCCI has been nothing but positive.
