Skin Cancer Surveillance

Get into a gown to beat skin cancer!!

At DVDG we are committed to your wellness. For this reason we have begun a new initiative to ensure that each of our patients has a complete skin exam at least once yearly - possibly even more often, if you have a history of skin cancer. The rates of skin cancer have increased dramatically over the past thirty years, even among teenagers. Today, it is estimated that one in every five Americans will develop some form of skin cancer in their lifetime. A complete skin exam is fast, costs nothing additional, and can save your life. So please, help us to help you. When you are offered a gown, please accept it. (Women can be assured that a female chaperone will be in the room at all times, and your privacy will be respected to the greatest extent possible.) Thank you.
