Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Alexandra Palgon "Skin cancer accounts for over 50% of all new malignancies in the United States. In response to this terrifying reality, we are committed to a three-tiered approach for improving the health of our community:

  • Education on methods of prevention and early detection
  • Thorough and regular skin cancer screening examinations
  • Compassionate treatment that maximizes effectiveness and respects aesthetic implications

We don’t believe in hasty decisions or one-size-fits-all treatments. Should we find a suspicious spot during a screening examination, we carefully determine if biopsy is appropriate. If skin cancer is diagnosed, we offer several techniques for its safe removal, including Mohs micrographic surgery and advanced reconstructive surgical procedures when needed.

We continually adapt our practice to reflect new and improved technique and procedures. Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. was the first in metro Atlanta to offer Superficial Radiation Therapy with the SRT-100, an innovative and effective non-surgical option for skin cancer management.  We proudly partner with Skin Cancer Specialists Surgery Center, LLC, the largest dermatology Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) in Georgia (State License# 033-517). Our Joint Commission (JCAHO) accreditation assures adherence to the highest standards in the industry.

We are committed to providing the ultimate in personalized care whether it’s skin cancer management, general dermatology or aesthetic services. Your total wellness and satisfaction is our primary goal."
