Dr. Michael Huether performed Mohs Micrographic surgery for Nodular Basal Cell Carcinoma on my nose. Without any reservation I very highly recommend Dr. Huether and his ARIZONA SKIN CANCER SURGERY CENTER !! Once I had an appointment for surgery, I received by mail a big envelope from Dr. Huether's Surgery Center with helpful instructions to follow BEFORE my appointment, explanations about different skin cancers AND medical forms to fill out at home (which I found considerate and helpful)! I was prepared for my scheduled time of my surgery! Because of the nurses and later the doctor's kind, caring attention and also explanations of what was done to me during the various steps for the surgical procedure, I was really feeling "at ease" and was calm to my own surprise! Before I was released from the Surgery Center that day I was instructed to follow certain steps during the healing process at home. I ADHERED TO EVERYTHING STRICTLY !! My nose healed beautifully!

I arrived for my procedure at 6:30 am, and was greeted by a very friendly and accommodating staff. I was briefed on every step of the procedure beforehand, and after the initial sample was taken I was made comfortable in the waiting area. All of the cancer was removed, on the first time, and I was brought into the OR to suture up the surgical site. Again I was made aware of every step before it began. Before leaving I was given detailed instruction for the wound care and was sent home. The entire procedure took about 4-5 hours, time well spent. At 9:00 pm that evening I received a call from Dr. Huether himself, asking about how I was feeling, any discomfort I may be experiencing as well as any questions that may have popped up since I was home concerning the procedure. I ask you what other Dr. does that? The next day the office called to check on me to see how I was feeling. I highly recommend Dr. Huether and his staff.

I had a great experience with Dr. Huether. He removed a spot just above my lip and it is still in the healing process. When I thought I was having issues, they had me come in same day. He checked out my lip and said all the swelling and issues I had were all part of the healing process. Both he and his staff put me at ease. I reccommend him to anyone considering having Mohs procedure.

Dr. Huether and his staff are wonderful. I had to have a cancerous mole removed from my lower eyelid. Dr. Huether was recommended to me by my dermatologist as the best skin cancer surgeon in the country, and even though I had to travel from out of state, I was glad to be able to have Dr. Huether perform this delicate surgery.

I am honored to have been a patient of Dr. Huether's. He and his ENTIRE staff were professional and kind. They also went above and beyond what was needed. Dr. Huether called me the evening after my surgery to be sure everything was going okay. Then the next morning his nurse called me to check in. I can't remember the last time a doctor actually called me. I was also very impressed with the printed information they gave me about skin cancer and about how to treat my wound once I was home. I cannot say enough good things about this doctor and his entire staff. I am singing their praises.

Dr. Huether's entire practice runs like a well oiled machine. The facility is spotless, the staff are all congenial, professional, and accommodating. The repair work on skin after the excision of the problem that Dr. Huether does ranks with the skill set of any plastic surgeon. I've personally had several procedures at the facility, and all have been done with professional precision. The extra mile they go to "always" includes an evening call from the doctor himself to check on how you feel. The need for these procedures is unfortunate, but Dr. Huether and his staff make the corrective actions the only place in Tucson to seek treatment.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Huether. I have been going to for over 15 years for various shin cancers and pre-cancers. He has always treated me courteously and with the same concern that he would treat his family.

I was extremely happy with my visit. I was very comfortable visiting their office in spite of the issues facing the county because of the virus. I found their protocols to be extremely good. Once in the examining room, before I met Dr. Huether, I had the complete process explained to me by the medical assistant. Once Dr. Huether came in, he explained all the options that were available to me for my case. After we decided on a course of action, the procedure was preformed quickly and painlessly. I was given my instructions for my in home care including being shown how to dress the affected area. I could not be happier with my entire experience with Dr. Huether and his entire staff. They showed a high level of compassion and were extremely professional. KAM
