Dermatology is an exciting field of medicine because we are able to treat the areas that patients can see. It is so fulfilling to see the progress that is made and to experience a patient's satisfaction with their results.

I’m very pleased with the health care I received. I would highly recommend missale mesfin for any kind of skin care issues one might have that might need surgery. She is a very compassionate and caring surgeon along with her assistant nurse Leslie.\nMs Willis

I’ve had MOHS surgery before and it’s never a fun experience, but DR Mesfin and her staff Meier were very professional and thorough in explaining what was happening throughout the whole procedure. I sincerely appreciate their good work and definitely highly recommend to others.
