Dr. Mejia shares his philosophy in his work. When patients come into the office, he wants to make sure that everyone receives the very best care and putting his soul into it. As he states in this short two minute video:
“I am not here to do dermatology. My main priority is to take care of my patients. I am not happy if my patients are not happy. If I can solve your problem and do what you want me to do in a relaxing and fun environment, then everyone wins.”
Our patient, Larry who recently spoke about his experience with , is at a follow up visit with Dr. Mejia who is a reputable skin cancer surgeon in South Florida. He shows some images of the basal cell carcinoma before the surgery. In this case, the patient neglected to take care of it earlier and it grew larger as time passed. Luckily with the Mohs skin cancer procedure, all the roots of the basal cells are removed .
After the removal of the skin cancer, Dr. Mejia did a plastic surgery closure which involved a flap procedure. Cosmetically, the patient is very happy with the result since the scar is hardly noticable because of the reconstructive surgery.
Dr. Mejia’s recommendation: Wear your sunblock and if you see any spots that are not healing, seek dermatological help.
Our patient, Larry, shares his experience with a skin cancer treatment called Mohs Surgery. He was concerned not only for his health, but because he works as a sales manager who meets the public frequently.
