Skin Cancer Prevention, Detection, and Treatment
The detection of skin cancer is an area of particular expertise for Dr. Arash Akhavan who received specialized training in digital dermoscopy when it was a newer technique during his days training at The Mount Sinai Medical Center. And we remain at the cutting edge of skin cancer detection and management, being amongst the first few practices to provide the newest SkinIO Advanced Mole-Mapping.
