    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

Can a doctor in Walnut Creek, CA cure skin cancer with surgery?

The diagnosis of skin cancer can be unsettling. You need to be informed so that you can choose the most competent surgeon to perform your skin cancer surgery in Walnut Creek, CA. Mohs Micrographic Surgery can be used in most cases and it provides a cure rate of 99%. This treatment should only be performed by a surgeon with extensive training in the procedure. Mohs surgery is a specialized technique and success involves expert tissue handling and surgical skill. Today's most competent surgeons such as Dr. Christine Lee have completed a fellowship approved by the American College of Mohs Surgery. Dr. Lee completed her training in dermatology and then a fellowship in Mohs surgery and cosmetic surgery at the University of California, San Francisco. She has observed and performed thousands of Mohs surgery procedures. Most doctors have not completed this training.

Mohs surgery is very precise, so the maximum amount of healthy tissue is spared. The technique focuses on only removing the diseased skin providing the best cosmetic outcome. But you can rest assured knowing that Dr. Christine Lee has expertise in cosmetic, reconstructive surgery as well.

Mohs has become a gold standard in skin cancer surgery. This technique is used all over the world because it provides immediate, microscopic evaluation of diseased skin tissue. This means that you can leave your doctors' office knowing that all of the cancer has been removed.

Dr. Lee performs Mohs surgery in her state-of-the-art office. This ensures that costs are minimized and your safety and comfort are maximized. The procedure can typically be completed in one visit, but this can vary based on the severity of the tumor and the necessary reconstruction.

During the procedure, Dr. Lee will precisely remove the tumor and then examine the area using a microscope. She will be looking for any remaining cancer cells. She will remove small sections and then map them to learn the direction that the cancer cells are growing. If she sees additional cancer cells, she will need to remove more tissue. When Dr. Lee determines that the tumor has been completely removed, she will reconstruct the area. During the procedure you will experience only minimal discomfort, if any.

If you need skin cancer surgery in Walnut Creek, California, don't wait to schedule your appointment with Dr. Lee. Early intervention gives the best outcomes. Call today to start your path to being cancer-free.
