Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. is home to the Atlanta Skin Cancer Center and was originally founded by Mark A. Chastain, M.D. and Jennifer L. Buckley, M.D., M.P.H. We provide Georgia with various prevention, detection, and management of skin cancer services. Since that time, we have grown to become a premier dermatology practice with multiple locations serving patients from not only metro Atlanta, but also from north and south Georgia, eastern Alabama, and southern Tennessee. Since our original vision as a practice focused solely on skin cancer, we have slowly broadened our scope to include general dermatology and cosmetic dermatological services. Our aesthetic center and laser center is staffed by fully licensed cosmetologists and aestheticians and offers a comprehensive menu of the latest treatment options.
Skin cancer accounts for over 50% of all new malignancies in the United States. Responding to this terrifying reality, we are committed to a three-tiered approach for improving the health of our community:
- Education on methods of prevention and early detection
- Thorough and regular skin cancer screening examinations
- Compassionate treatment that maximizes effectiveness and respects aesthetic implications
We don’t believe in hasty decisions or one-size-fits-all treatments. Should we find a suspicious spot during a screening examination, we carefully determine if biopsy is appropriate. If skin cancer is diagnosed, we offer several techniques for its safe removal, including Mohs micrographic surgery and advanced reconstructive surgical procedures when needed.
