It's about youDr. Darrell Fader - Mohs Surgeon Skin cancer specialist - In Private Practice Since 2001

"We take patient care personally."

Thank you for choosing the Skin Cancer Center to assist you with your health care needs.

Dr. Fader performs Mohs microscopic surgery, a skin cancer removal technique which uses microscopy to remove only the cancerous tissue, leaving healthy tissue intact and unharmed. This precise method minimizes the chance of cancer re-growth, and lessens the likelihood of scarring or disfigurement.

This specialized surgery has the distinction of providing the highest skin cancer cure rates, even if other forms of treatment have failed, with often excellent aesthetic and functional results.

  • If your insurance requires a co-payment, please be prepared to take care of this when you check into the clinic. For the convenience of our patients, we accept Visa, Master Card, checks and cash. Should you need to make special financial arrangements, please contact our office.


  • If you are a member of a managed care plan or HMO, a referral will need to be obtained from your primary care physician prior to seeing you in the office. Please check with our office prior to the day of your appointment to verify we have received the referral. If you arrive to see the physician and the referral has not been received, we might have to reschedule your appointment.

Please check with your insurance plan to confirm Dr. Fader participates with your insurance plan. Your plan may have you pay a larger portion of the charges if the doctor is not participating within your specific insurance network plan.
