Google reviews for best dermatologist in the area 5 Star Reviews, DSA Dermatology
Wow!!! I randomly looked up a dermatologist in my area for a small procedure I needed done and I will say I could not be happier with this team!!!! EVERYONE in the office is just so friendly and welcoming. The Doctor was super super nice and explained everything in detail that was easily understandable and even had suggestions on how to keep costs down.The nurse I had was WONDERFUL!!! Just an all around perfect experience and I highly highly suggest this office to anyone in the West Plano area. Great example of good culture in an office. Loved my visit!

TOTAL SKIN EXAMINATIONS – NOT QUITE THERE

(American Journal of Medicine 05/2010) According to recent surveys, only about 13% of women and 16% of men received skin cancer screening

 

Total skin examination by a qualified physician represents a major opportunity – or one lost – to detect early skin cancer such as Melanoma. How often do you think most of us take advantage of this? This very large study of more than 10,000 people showed what is commonly suspected by Dermatologists. Patients are not getting Total Skin Exams and curable melanomas may be going undetected despite regular doctor visits!!

 

Only 13-16% of women and men had their skin examined despite reporting that well over 50% of them had breast, prostate, and rectal cancer screening. Interestingly men get more skin exams than women do; however, both numbers are frighteningly low!!

 

WE KNOW THIS FIRST HAND WHEN A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR PATIENT WAS RECENTLY DIAGNOSED WITH MELANOMA AT OUR OFFICE. SHE REPORTED IT HAD BEEN THERE TWO YEARS. THIS IS AN EASY, QUICK EXAM. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT.
