The Mohs College Difference

While any board-certified dermatologist may perform Mohs surgery, only members of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) have undergone rigorous fellowship training. Chosen through an extremely competitive review and selection process, fellows are required to complete an intensive 1 or 2-year post-residency ACMS fellowship training program. This extensive training includes participation in at least 500 Mohs surgery cases under the supervision of an experienced ACMS-approved Mohs surgeon.

What Our Patients Say*

“I had a large basal cell between my eyebrow and the hairline on my temple. Two weeks after he cut it out, it was impossible to see any scar!” – Paul B.

“Dr. Bryan L. Townsend is a first class, top shelf dermatologist. Over a period of time, he has removed six (6) skin melanomas from various parts of my face and arm. Never felt any discomfort on any of them. He’s the only doctor that I see for these types of abnormalities! I hope that he outlives me because I never want to have to look for another doctor to perform these types of procedures! And what he fixes stays fixed!” – Chuck T.

“I had to have a procedure with Dr. Townsend. I didn’t feel anything. He spent plenty of time with me and I recommend him highly. What a great guy! Thank you Dr. Townsend!” – Mark S.

“Can’t say anything but great things about this office. The staff is great and Dr. Townsend took such good care of me. He explained everything he was doing before he did it: what to expect, etc. Very pleased!” – Claudia G.
