"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."

Mary Hurt, MD

Board Certified

"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.”

Leah Fishbein, ARNP-C

Board Certified Nurse Practitioner

"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."
