What People Say About Dr. Thomas Hocker, MD

I have had 16 skin cancer surgeries over the last 30 years. I had one recently that was on my lip and required the surgery to extend to the inside of the lip as well. I have always chosen only the best in MOHS surgery to do these procedures. This one was really tricky and the results have been better than I had hoped for. Dr. Hocker, has a great sense of humor and is very relaxed, more importantly he is very skilled. If you think you will need surgery don't hesitate to go to this man.

Dr. Hocker performed Mohs Surgery on my face last summer. His work was excellent and the scarring is so much better than I expected. His bedside manner made me feel confident in his work and very comfortable.

Dr. Hocker removed basel cell carcinoma from my forehead. I felt confident in his skills, and the scar is minimal. My sister has since been diagnosed with skin cancer, and I immediately recommended Dr. Hocker. Be realistic in your expectations - Moh's surgery takes time. If you have an AM surgery, prepare to stay through lunch. It is worth it! Dr. Hocker was meticulous when putting in stitches, and I have an amazing outcome.

An excellent doctor. He has performed two MOHS surgeries on my father. We cannot be happier and very grateful for his good work. The whole team at the Advanced Dermatologic Surgery, P.A. ADS ambulatory Surgery Center is fantastic. Rick, Andrea, Kelly, Ryan, and all other personnel are great and so are all others who made sure we were as comfortable as possible. My father and I cannot be more thankful!

Outstanding patient care! Dr. Hocker and his entire staff are dedicated to the patient and the patient's needs. I recently had mohs surgery performed by Dr. Hocker and I was amazed at the attention to detail and "bedside manner" afforded to me. Congratulations for a job well done! I have already recommended Dr. Hocker and all the nurses and staff to my family and friends.
