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.

Everyone was very good about putting me at ease and making sure I understood what was going to happen and each process. You certainly can't say that it wasn't a stressful situation, but the actions and attitude of everyone did a great job of reassuring me and reducing the stress level as much as possible. Great job, EVERYONE!! Thank you.

It was fifteen years ago that I underwent my first Mohs surgery. Time and the delaying damage inflicted by the sun caught up with me yet again. Needless to say, I was dreading every second of this procedure Dr. Mesfin and her medical assistant, Reshona, knew I was upset. They were very compassionate, professional, competent and, best of all, quick! The procedure didn't take as long as I remembered. Also, some newer techniques made the process less onerous such as "magic glue" which obviated the need for surface stitches. I would highly recommend Dr. Mesfin and the staff at Forefront Dermatology in Tysons Corner. .
