Emily de Golian, MD, FAAD
Board-Certified Dermatologist
Board-Certified Mohs Surgeon
Fellowship-Trained Mohs Surgeon
My greatest professional joy is in caring for patients, surgically, medically, and cosmetically, making sure each visit is as easy and comforting as possible. I always aim to make sure patients understand their medical problems well, their treatment options and ultimate plan, and that each person receives exceptional care. Surgically, I take great pride in the successful removal of skin cancers with the most minimal scarring possible, because I understand that patient goals include not only removal of the tumor but also looking and feeling like themselves once healed.
