    Right Quote Definitely no one better in the bay area. I have been so impressed with her bedside manner and most of all with her results. If you want results then you should make an appointment right away. Right Quote

    Right Quote Words can not describe how grateful I am to Dr. Lee for saving my face and honestly I would say my life. She's an absolute master and genius at what she does. I wouldn't even be able to show my face in public now if it weren't for her. I had the worst scars on my face that were so bad they scared other people. These scars were caused by a doctor who burned my face with a laser. I would have been happy just looking a little better but Dr. Lee was able to make my face look almost normal again. I can cover most of what's left with make-up now and most people can't tell what had happened to me. I still have internal scars from what that other doctor did but at least the outside scars are pretty much gone. I wish I had never had to go thru all this but I'm just grateful that there was someone like Dr. Lee who could help me get my face back. Right Quote

    Right Quote Absolutely the best results. I wish I had gone to her first instead of wasting my money with no-nothing nurses are doctors who talk a good game but are merely dabblers. I got the results I needed and now look 15 years younger. She is a miracle worker! Right Quote

    Right Quote She's the best doctor!

    Dr. Lee treated my moles and also the moles on my 2 young girls with laser. They were very scared but Dr. Lee did a great job getting them to trust her. She was very patient and kind. AFter the first time, my daughters thought it was no big deal and were no longer scared. She did a great job removing the moles and we're all so happy! I wouldn't trust anyone else to treat me or my family. She's the best! Right Quote

    Right Quote The only doctor who helped my rosacea

    I have really bad rosacea and sensitive skin and haven't been able to find any doctor who can help me...that is, until I found Dr. M. Christine Lee. I've seen several other very well-known derms and spent tons of money trying to get my rosacea under control. I've had fotofacials, IPL, VBeam, you name it, I've had it. Nothing has really made a difference. I almost gave up until I found out about Dr. Lee from the online rosacea support group. I heard great things about a laser procedure she developed. I started seeing her over a year ago and have gone thru several treatments and I am THRILLED!!!! I feel like a normal person for the first time in my life. No more redness and burning. Her treatment has been a miracle for me. All I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Right Quote

BEST MOHS SURGEON
I have had numerous skin cancers treated by Dr. Lee and before her had many skin cancers treated by other doctors: plastic surgeons and Mohs surgeons. After having Dr. Lee work on me, I can see a big difference in the quality of work. I would never consider having anyone else operate on me now that I have seen the difference. Not all Mohs surgeons are good! I've been to a couple in Walnut Creek and another in S.F. who did horrible work on me in retrospect. She is a perfectionist and cares truly about the welfare of her patients. She has my highest recommendations.

Mohs Micrographic Skin Cancer Surgery
Doctor Inspecting Patient Skin A skin cancer diagnosis can be scary for anyone. It is never an easy thing to hear. However, it is important that patients of East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center understand that even though it is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in America, it also has the highest recovery and survival rates of any cancer out there. Thanks to technological advances in dermatological skin surgeries, patients can enjoy removal of cancerous cells quickly and easily with Mohs Micrographic Surgery.

Mohs micrographic surgery is a specialized procedure that was developed back in 1930 by Dr. Frederic Mohs and is one of the most effective ways for dermatologists to remove cancerous skin cells. It allows them to do so by maintaining healthy skin cells around the area, while removing all the cancerous skin cells that are of concern. It has an extremely high success rate and is the most frequently performed surgery for patients with a skin cancer diagnosis.

Mohs micrographic surgery performed by Dr. Christine Lee is an outpatient procedure that can be done in a relatively short period. The area is locally numbed, and the patient stays awake and coherent during the surgery. Pieces of the skin are removed until no cancerous cells are left, and the patient is then stitched up and sent home. If any reconstructive work needs to be done for cosmetic reasons, this can be completed later.

Patients should know that in order to perform Mohs micrographic surgery, a dermatologist must be thoroughly trained and a member of the American College of Mohs Surgery (also known as the ACMS). This certification, extensive training, and development of skills are required in order for the surgery to be completed. Dr. Lee of East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center has the experience and expertise to provide this service to her patients in order to treat and remove skin cancer.

After skin cancer cells have been removed, patients are strongly encouraged to continue to visit their dermatologist in order to screen for a redevelopment of the cancer. Moles and skin checks should be done annually be everyone for early detection of cancerous skin cells, which can result in higher success with treatment. Preventative measures are also encouraged, including daily sun protection.

Dr. Lee is available to help new and existing patients screen for skin cancer to ensure early diagnosis and treatment. Call East Bay Laser and Skin Care Center today to schedule an examination. Start taking proactive steps to protect yourself from skin cancer.
