Since 1991, the renowned publishing company Castle Connolly has compiled the list of America’s Top Doctors® each year to help guide consumers to America’s top doctors and top hospitals. Castle Connolly’s established nomination survey, research, screening, and selection process, under the direction of a medical doctor, involves hundreds of thousands of physicians as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional and community hospitals across the nation. Castle Connolly’s physician-led team of researchers follows a rigorous screening process to select top doctors on both the national and regional levels. Every doctor on the list is nominated by peer doctors in their specific field.

Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors. The Physicians selected for inclusion were included in the January issue of 435 magazine’s “Top Doctors” and may also appear online at or in conjunction with other Castle Connolly Top Doctors databases online and/or in print.

The Top Doc award-winning physicians accept patients at Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers’ five area offices conveniently located in the cities of Leawood and Overland Park, Kansas, as well as Lees Summit, Joplin, and the Shoal Creek neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri.

Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers, now a part of U.S. Dermatology Partners, was founded in 1987 by Dr. Glenn Goldstein and was one of the first practices to offer Mohs Micrographic Surgery for high-risk skin cancer patients. Headquartered in the Kansas City area, the practice is recognized today as one of the top treatment centers in the nation for skin cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment and is home to 20 board-certified dermatologists, including seven fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons.

Each year, over 100,000 patients pass through the doors of Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers and its highly specialized medical professionals treat over 7,000 skin cancers and thousands of other dermatological conditions annually. Using a balanced approach to general dermatology, skin cancer treatments and prevention, and cosmetic skin procedures of the face and body, Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers offers well-rounded and comprehensive care to all its patients.

Additionally, the expanding practice now also includes a range of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, including breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, facelifts, body contouring and more at certain locations. And, for those seeking the latest advances in laser skin treatment, the practice is recognized as a national training center by the largest laser company in the world.

“U.S. Dermatology Partners is proud of the physicians from our Kansas City team that are so respected by their peers as to be deemed worthy of the Top Doc honor,” says CEO Paul Singh. “This designation is a tribute to their commitment to delivering exceptional patient care experiences and to supporting our vision of building the premier dermatology care community in America.”
