Dr. Ahern is one of the tops in his field. I just had the 3rd Mohs procedure done with him since 2010 and all have gone totally without incident or any issue following the surgery. The office space, the front office staff and the techs . . . but especially Dr. Ahern, just sparkle. They make such a procedure much less stressful than it might otherwise be. If you see Dr. A. once, he will become a trusted healthcare provider.

I was diagnosed with 2 basal cell carcinomas by my dermatologist, who recommended Mohs surgery with Dr. Ahern or another surgeon. My wife and I researched both doctors and found them to have equally impressive backgrounds--we chose Dr. Ahern because he had room in his schedule within 2 days of our initial call, compared to 5 weeks. Our first contact with Dr. Ahern's office was with Paula in medical billing--she even called my plan to confirm coverage. Then I met Gloria, who settled me into the surgery room--she was friendly and thoroughly described what I could expect, and most importantly listened and responded to my concerns. Dr. Ahern was on point and extremely competent. Gloria gave us clearly written post-op instructions & her number in case we needed her help. The follow-up visit to remove the sutures a week later took little time and was painless. We would highly recommend Dr. Ahern and his staff.

This is my first time being treated for shin cancer. Dr. Ahern was very informative of the procedure and explained step by step what was going to take place. I’m very pleased his care and treatment. I would highly recommend him for treatment of your needs.

Dr. Ahern has removed 3 basal cell carcinomas from my forehead and scalp. Cosmetically, his work is exceptional. Procedurally, everything went smoothly and painlessly. He and his entire staff are comforting, caring, courteous, and professional.

I had an excellent office staff experience prior to my appointment with Dr. Ahern. Then, Dr. Ahern and his Medical Assistant did an amazing job at explaining the Mohs procedure every step of the way. I received caring and expert care from Dr. Ahern.

After finding a string of terrible dermatologists, I became super jaded by the time I scheduled with Dr. Ahern. However, he was able to put me at ease within the first 5 minutes of meeting him. He genuinely cares about his patients and their concerns, he even made an alternate treatment suggestion that was just as effective medically, but cost less than half of the procedure which I was initially referred for. He is an all around wonderful doctor and I am very grateful to be under his care.

I had the Mohs Procedure done and was very impressed with Dr. Ahern and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Ahern if this procedure is required. It was a very stress free environment.
