Do you perform preventative skin cancer screening?


Orchid Dermatology DOES NOT do preventative skin cancer screening, this service is provided by your Primary Care Physician. We perform Full Body Skin Exams where we can evaluate, treat, prescribe, and perform procedures all in one visit.

A Preventative Skin Cancer Screening is when insurance only allows the provider to look for abnormal moles or lesions. No other skin issues can be addressed, no procedures can be done, and no prescriptions can be ordered at this visit.
