We want to make your treatment as easy and worry-free as possible. Before your scheduled Mohs surgery, you will receive a medical questionnaire and a call from one of our nurses to walk you through what to expect. Please ask us any questions you have — we want to make you comfortable and prepared.
SCHEDULING YOUR MOHS SURGERY
Depending on the urgency of your case, we recommend scheduling your surgery when you don’t have important social engagements soon after and plan to stay in town in case follow-up care is required. Please keep in mind that you need to refrain from heavy physical activity for a few days after surgery, including work, sports and exercising.
