Was not sure about the MOHS technique when I went to the office. Dr James spent the time to explain the procedure in detail and then provide me assurrance that the odds of success were over 95% and I would probably not need plastic surgery ( the operation was on my face). Althought the procedure does take a little longer, I felt comfortable that the cancer was gone when I left the office. The staff was great and he did a fine job. 2 weeks and you can't tell where the surgery was.
