Why Choose Cary Skin Center?
We are experts in treating skin cancer. Our physicians and team of healthcare providers focus exclusively on performing Mohs micrographic and reconstructive surgery.
Experience – over 55 years performing Mohs surgery
With over 55 years combined experience as Mohs surgeons, our physicians are one of the Triangle’s most experienced Mohs micrographic and reconstructive surgical teams. Our physicians are board certified dermatologists, Fellows of the American Academy of Dermatology and Fellows of the American College of Mohs Surgeons.
Safe and cost-effective treatment – high cure rate, no extra fees
Mohs micrographic surgery offers the highest cure rate (up to 99%) for selected skin cancers. It is performed in an outpatient surgical suite utilizing safe local anesthesia.
We do not charge Facility Fees or Technical Fees. Cary Skin Center is not affiliated with any hospital or ambulatory surgical center (ASC). The majority of our repairs following Mohs surgery are completed in our outpatient surgical suites, thus eliminating additional surgery charges, ASC fees and Facility Fees.
Facility Fees are the result of changes in the Medicare rules to provider-based billing. This change allows hospitals (and any hospital-owned physician practices and surgical centers) that meet certain federal requirements to bill separately for the facility as well as for the physician services.
NOTE: Most insurance plans do not cover Facility Fees, thus the patient is responsible for payment resulting in higher out-of-pocket costs to the patient.

Training – ACMS fellowship trained surgeons
Our physicians are Fellows of the American College of Mohs Surgeons (ACMS). They successfully completed a rigorous program, including a 1-2 year intensive post-residency training and participating in at least 500 Mohs cases including advanced reconstruction and complex surgical cases.
