Priority for Skin Cancer
South Central Kentucky has a tremendous need for a skin cancer specialist. Eventhough we see a wide variety of skin problems (i.e. acne, warts, rashes, etc) and offer cosmetic services, our main focus is skin cancer. We are proud to offer Mohs Micrographic Surgery, the most advanced surgical technique to treat skin cancer. Furthermore, we specialize in the evaluation and treatment of benign and malignant skin lesions or growths as well as routine skin cancer screenings. We strive to meet the needs of patients diagnosed with skin cancer in a timely and efficient manner.
