SARASOTA, FL – SkinSmart Dermatology recently opened a new on-site Mohs skin cancer surgical wing in conjunction with the addition of fellowship-trained Mohs skin cancer surgeon Dr. William B. Adams.
According to SkinSmart’s Founder and Medical Director Dr. Elizabeth Callahan, “This makes SkinSmart the only dermatological practice from Tampa to Ft. Myers with two fellowship-trained Mohs skin cancer surgeons on staff. We are very fortunate to have Dr. Adams join us, and at the same time expand our office space to accommodate our existing and new patients.”
Skin Cancer is the most common of all skin cancers, says the American Cancer Society, accounting for half of all cancers. Approximately 3.5 million non-melanoma skin cancers are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Of the states with the highest skin cancer rates, California is first and Florida is second.
“No one thinks they’ll get skin cancer,” says Dr. Adams, “but the American Academy of Dermatology estimates that there will be about 137,990 new cases of melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, in the U.S. in 2013. I urge anyone who has never been screened to schedule an appointment with a board certified dermatologist… for your own peace of mind.”
SkinSmart Dermatology’s offices encompass more than 10,000 square feet, including the SkinFitness Center. The center offers hand-picked skincare lines from around the world, physical barrier sunscreen products and sun protective clothing and hats for adults and children.
