Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mehta There are many different ways of removing a skin cancer. And my specialty, Mohs micrographic surgery, allows me to remove particular skin cancers that are either previously excised - or previously removed - or recurrent skin cancer, or if they're located on the head and neck, or if they're located on the arms or on the body where they're greater than two centimeters - so bigger than the size of a quarter. So any area such as your eyelids, your nose, your lips, your ears, those are the more common areas where we operate and perform the Mohs micrographic surgery, because not only does it provide the best cure rate, but it also provides us to take the least amount of normal tissue as possible - which means the chances of having a smaller scar are much higher because we're not removing as much normal tissue.

Dr. Mehta is an excellent dermatologist! She is very knowledgeable in her field and is always extremely professional. She made my procedure process smooth and easy. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Mehta - she is great!
New York, NY |
Was told I could request to only see the doctor (no extra staff in the room). I did this, and was lectured by her on how I can't do this (in front of her assistant). I DIDN'T "reject" her student as she claims, I politely informed him of my prior request and he left...not sure what info he relayed to her.She then proceeded to argue with me and say my mole had grown in size, before reviewing the picture she took months ago. Then changed her mind to agree with me. Incompetent. Rude. Need new dr.
