David Gaston, MD
"As a fellowship-trained Mohs skin cancer surgeon with fifteen years experience treating thousands of skin cancers, I strive to provide the highest quality care of skin cancers, and do so on an individualized basis, helping each patient decide what would be the best treatment for their skin cancer, whether that is Mohs surgery, simple excision, topical chemotherapy, or radiation therapy."
"Dermatology is a great specialty because of the mix of medicine and procedures. Because most skin cancers can be caught early, a skin screening exam can save lives. In addition, many internal diseases present with skin manifestations and can be diagnosed with a simple skin exam. It is satisfying to build relationships with patients and to be able to see skin conditions improve right before our eyes with the treatments we provide."
“My decision to enter medicine was an easy one. During college not only was I most interested in the sciences, but I felt a calling towards medicine. I wanted to dedicate my career to being involved in the health and well being of others. Dermatology is an incredible field and one of the most exciting aspects of the field is that our patients usually get better. There is nothing more satisfying than a patient who comes back to the office with a beaming smile because we were able to help them.”
"I have a true passion for cosmetic dermatology. I get great gratification from assisting people to feel better about their appearance. If people are more confident about their appearance, it tends to be reflected in other parts of their life, both personal and professional. In terms of what sets me apart, I am a Board Certified Dermatologist. I keep on the cutting edge with regard to new procedures and techniques. Very importantly, I personally perform all BOTOX and filler injections in my office."
"One of the many reasons I enjoy dermatology is the visual improvement that is seen when treating skin conditions. Skin cancers, rashes, and diseases of the skin are visible. Improvement and resolution are visible as well which is very rewarding for patients and providers alike."
“Dermatology is like being a detective. I get to investigate, diagnose and treat the Patients' dermatologic and aesthetic needs. This ends up being rewarding as I can see the patients' over coming their dermatological conditions.”
"Early in the Physician Assistant program, I did a rotation in dermatology, and I fell in love with the field. I was amazed at how much one could diagnose from the skin. I also loved the out-patient setting and found that dermatology combined what I liked about many other fields of medicine."
"Originally, I became interested in the field of Dermatology when a family member of mine was diagnosed with melanoma. After a one year internship and two clinical rotations in Dermatology I knew this was the area of medicine I wanted to practice. Dermatology allows me the opportunity to combine both medical and surgical skills to diagnose and treat patients with varying degrees of skin conditions - from acne and psoriasis to skin cancers."
"My primary goal as a Nurse Practitioner is to positively impact the lives of men and women in all stages of life. From the treatment of acne, to early recognition and treatment of skin cancer, to the effective management of acute or lifelong dermatologic conditions, I find joy in helping my patients live healthier and happier lives. I have a passion for educating patients on ways to improve their health and achieve their own, individual goals in the treatment of skin disorders. The skin is often ignored, but it can serve as an indicator of our overall health as many diseases and imbalances manifest as skin disorders. As an ARNP with Dual-Master degrees in Adult-Gerontology and Women's Health, I am excited to treat general dermatologic conditions as well as those specific to female patients."
