At Dermatology Associates of Wisconsin we pride ourselves by offering education, prevention, detection and the latest treatment options. In 2012, we treated approximately 13,300 patients for skin cancer.
This skin cancer screening will allow members of the community to have their skin checked for any suspicious growths that are changing in size, color, asymmetry or bleeding and/or crusting. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet the providers and become more familiar with the clinic. Should a recommendation be made by the provider for further treatment, the patient will have an opportunity to schedule an appointment to have the spot biopsied and checked for skin cancer.
Skin Cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and Dermatology Associates of Wisconsin strives to improve the communities we serve by decreasing the severity of skin disease through public awareness initiatives, personalized treatment plans and effective collaboration with our partners in medicine that brings the best dermatology in your neighborhood.
