4 Stars  This was my second Mohs with Dr. Levender. I was disappointed this last time because of insufficient information provided, I was not informed that she needed to shave off some of my hair at the hairline: it was a not and it was necessary but a heads up (no pun intended) would have been appreciated. I found out when I removed my bandage at home and when I asked the assistant to confirm this at my one week follow up she did not answer with a yes or no. I also had a lot of post op swelling sound my eye and tingling and loss of sensation on my scalp, both of which is normal and has since mostly gone away. This was not discussed after the procedure and was just given a handout providing general post op information. Bottom line is that I have full confidence in Dr Levender’s competency but communication from her and assistants with client needs to improve. –
