What Our Patients Say

Deborah Zell, MD
5 Stars  Dr. Zell and her staff are very professional and also very empathetic, an ideal combination during a stressful time the nation is going through and another somewhat stressful time of having a malignancy removed from your face or other part of your body. Her confidence and expertise in her profession is calming to the patient. I highly recommend her to anyone needing removal of skin cancers. She strives to make scarring minimal while at the same time making sure all cancerouls cells are removed. She is the best. –
