Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Crater "I treat skin cancer primarily. Not all skin cancers need surgery. Not all skin cancers need Mohs surgery, although some do. Skin cancer treatment should be tailored according to the patients age, overall health, cosmetic concerns, and personal preference."

Patient Comments (3)
in Cape Coral, FL |
Dr. Crater has always made himself available whenever issues arise between scheduled visits and has done a great job with my old skin problems. He and his staff are thorough, patient and completely professional.
in Ft Myers, FL |
1.5 yrs ago I had a procedure done & got an awful Staph infection, his nurse said how odd it was as one other patient got the same thing that week. Then over the past 6 months, he did a biopsy on an area on my face, said it was all clear, never healed, and ended up doing it a 2nd time, still didn't get it, wanted to do it a 3rd, possibly a 4th time. I finally realized he is an inadequate Dr. So I went to a different group, and they did it all in 1 procedure, including the biopsy,Never see him!
in Lehigh Acres, FL |
Dr. Crater was not knowledgeable about my condition. He said if I wasn't so fat, I wouldn't have it. But he later realized that this disease is hereditary. He was not professional; I would not go back to him.
