    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

What is the treatment for patients in Walnut Creek to undergo in skin cancer dermatology?

Skin cancer is a serious issue, just as any other cancer can be. However, with early diagnosis and effective treatment, it doesn't have to be a death sentence. While the number of Americans diagnosed with skin cancer is increasing, many technological advances have occurred that allow skin cancer patients to have the highest recovery rates. This is because skin cancer is visible and can be removed from the body quickly and easily with help from a physician who specializes in skin cancer dermatology. Walnut Creek dermatologist, Dr. Christine Lee is able to assist patients in the diagnosis, removal, and prevention of skin cancer.

Skin cancer is typically treated with a surgical procedure called Mohs micrographic surgery. This treatment was devised by Dr. Frederick Mohs in the 1930's and doctors continue to use this process today. It is one of the most effective ways to address skin cancer and eliminate the removal of surrounding healthy skin. It can also result in a much smaller surgical scar and is less invasive than other surgical procedures.

Dr. Lee of Walnut Creek's The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute performs this procedure as an outpatient surgery, while the patient is awake. The area is numbed, and small microscopic pieces of the skin are removed until there are no more cancerous cells left. Dr. Lee then stitches the area and sends the patient on their way. It is done quickly, effectively, and can only be performed by qualified dermatologists. In order to receive certification, doctors need to attend extensive training to receive proper certification from the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS). Dr. Lee has undergone this training and received the certification from ACMS to be compliant and offer Mohs micrographic surgery for her patients.

If you have skin cancer and want an effective treatment, call today to schedule a consultation appointment and learn how you can receive treatment for your condition quickly and easily with a certified Mohs micrographic surgeon.
