What To Expect

About Dermatologic Surgery

Dr. Villacorta specializes in performing skin surgery under local anesthesia right in our outpatient office. Our approach ensures a convenient and comfortable experience for our patients.

Surgical rates at our office are based on the surgery being performed. The pricing listed above provides an approximate time for common surgical procedures, making it easy for you to estimate the costs involved.

Mohs surgery, typically reserved for surgical treatment of skin cancer on the face, scalp, hands, feet, and genitalia, is also performed for rare forms of skin cancer or in cases where skin cancer has recurred. Although this specialized surgery is not available at our office, we consider it an important part of comprehensive skin care and cancer treatment.

To ensure that our patients receive the best care possible, we maintain a close working relationship with a number of esteemed dermatologists in our community who specialize in the Mohs procedure.

If you require Mohs surgery for treatment, rest assured that our commitment to your care does not stop at our office door. We facilitate a seamless transition to one of our trusted community physicians, working hand in hand with them throughout the process. Your health and care are our top priority, and we are dedicated to ensuring you receive the appropriate treatment, whether that’s within our office or through a community partner.

how much does a dermatologist cost for medicare patients?

Our downtown Fort Lauderdale location proudly accepts Medicare patients for dermatological care only, offering them the same high-quality dermatological care we’re known for. However, it’s important to note that patients covered by Medicare have unique billing requirements.

Due to unique Medicare regulations, billing for Medicare patients deviates from our standard direct care dermatology pricing structure. But rest assured, our commitment to transparency, quality care, and patient satisfaction remains the same.

At our clinic, we’re passionate about providing exceptional dermatology services to all members of our community.
