    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

    Dr. Freeman says...

    We provide our patients with the most advanced and comprehensive dermatologic care available. In addition to offering a wide range of medical dermatology procedures, we are also highly skilled and experienced in dermatologic surgery.

    Some of our surgical services include:

    Mole/Growth Removal

    We offer many different mole removal services. We can freeze, cauterize (burn), scalpel excise (cut), snip excise (cut), or scrape with electro desiccation, your growth or mole off. If your mole is non-cancerous, there is no need to remove it other than for aesthetic purposes. If your mole has un-even edges or you notice it is growing in size, please come in to have it biopsied. We will determine if it is cancerous and needs to be removed.

    Excision of Non-Melanoma Skin Cancers

    Non-melanoma skin cancers, such as basal cell or squamous cell skin cancers may be excised.
