Tips for Surgery Day


Our goal is to make you as comfortable as possible during your surgical procedure. Listed below are helpful tips to help you prepare:

Information for Your Mohs Surgery:

  • You will be asked to remain for observation between stages.
  • Therefore, plan to be in our office all morning and into the afternoon.
  • Have all meals as normal, breakfast and lunch. We do recommend that you pack snacks and drinks.
  • Take all medications as normal, including aspirins and blood thinners.
  • Tell the doctor if you have any allergies to medicines or have a bleeding problem.
  • You may experience some delay due to prior surgeries.
  • Bring something to keep you occupied while your specimens are processed.
  • Wear warm socks and clothes to the office on the day of the surgery (surgical suite is kept cool).
  • Do not plan any other appointment or other activities on the day of the surgery.

NOTE: This cutting-edge skin cancer treatment is performed in one of our in-office laboratories, which is subject to stringent quality and personnel requirements established by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA). The practice is also proud to be a College of American Pathologists (CAP) accredited laboratory.

I have been going to Jenny, the paramedical esthetician, at the Dr. Phillips location for over a year now. She is the best! Very friendly and knowledgeable. She has helped me through electrolysis with quite a bit of unwanted hair on my face. It is a commitment to do it right, but I have been very happy with the results. I have also used her for facial chemical peels. She is great with both. I highly recommend seeing Jenny!
