Very caring efficient and competent.

All the staff at Arizona Skin Cancer Surgery were great. All explained in detail what they were doing and why. They answered all my questions in detail. The informational handouts were great and provided me with the information I needed to understand what would happen and why. The post operation information was equally impressive. I've been following the instructions to the letter and I'm making excellent progress in healing. Dr. Huether called me at home after each procedure. Service and care!

Dr Huether, is an incredible Dr,he is so caring and professional explaining his procedures. He is the only Dr. i know that calls after your surgery, in the evening, to see how you are doing. All of my surgeries, have healed beautifully, with very little scaring. He is very knowledgeable, about all forms of cancer, helping you to be comfortable, knowing you are in good hands. All of his staff, are warm, friendly and very caring.

Care and treatment were great, though didn't like diagnosis! Did experience 30-45 minute delay from appointment time, but understand how this happens late pm.

I have had at least 15 Mohs surgeries over the last 20 years, mostly in Oregon, and this was my first Mohs surgeon here in Arizona. Dr. Huether removed 3 basal cell cancers on my chest (not using Mohs), and I was left with a long (10 inch) "Z" shaped scar starting at the clavicle. His assistants used so much local pain killer, that I was shivering and shaking. Then he referred me back to my dermatologist to "take care of the scarring" which was left from the surgery. I will not return.

I was seen by Dr. Heather yesterday and my experience was wonderful. I was seen promptly and he was friendly and very professional. He spent time doing a full body exam and gently performed a biopsy on my shoulder. I also enjoyed viewing the photos of his children and their framed art on the walls of the exam room.

excellent skin cancer doctor. Maybe one of the best doctors I've had over the years.
