Connecting You with Consulting Physicians

At times, the level of aggressiveness of certain cancers or growths may warrant referral to consulting physicians in other medical and surgical specialties such as surgical oncology, radiation oncology, plastic surgery, oculoplastic, and head and neck surgery.

The Importance of Being Fellowship-Trained

When you choose to work with Greco Dermatology, you can feel confident and assured you’re in the excellent hands of a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon. In addition to being fellowship-trained himself, Joseph F. Greco, M.D. also trained other fellows at UCLA in Mohs surgery. Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons must undergo:

  • A competitive application, review, and selection process to be chosen for training
  • Extensive hands-on direction and education from highly qualified trainers who are themselves skilled practitioners of the Mohs procedure
  • 1-2 years of additional training after residency
  • Exposure to rare tumor pathology, difficult tumor locations, and complex wound reconstruction
  • A minimum of 650 cases during training

When to See a Dermatologist 

Everyone, regardless of their skin type, are at risk for developing skin cancer — and those with a history of skin cancer are at risk for developing more. When looking at your skin, be aware of the following warning signs that could be an indication that a growth may be cancerous:

  • A new growth on an adult that does not disappear within 4-6 weeks
  • A skin lesion that grows larger and turns pearly, translucent, brown, black, or multi-colored
  • A mole, birthmark, or beauty mark that grows larger, changes color, texture, or shape
  • An open sore or wound that doesn’t heal for more than four weeks, or heals and then reopens or recurs 
  • A skin spot or growth that scales, scabs, oozes, erodes, or bleeds for several weeks
  • A growth with changes in sensation such as itching, burning, pain, or tenderness
  • Any worrisome skin lesion

If you have any of the above concerns or simply want to make an appointment for a skin exam to evaluate for any lesions or growths, please call to schedule an appointment or consultation.
