Did you know that May is melanoma awareness month? We’re using this opportunity to remind our patients that the most important thing you can do for your skin health today is schedule your annual full-body skin exam. Help us spread the word . . . remind your friends and family that early detection of melanoma and any skin cancer can save a life.
