Dr. Maydan's Patient Reviews

"Dr. Maydan is a superb practitioner of Mohs surgery. She removed a skin cancer from my face leaving an opening the size of a silver dollar then she closed it leaving no visible scar. I highly recommend her if you have this medical need."
by Paul F.

"This message is for those who have Mohs surgery scheduled with Dr. Maydan. You couldn't have made a better choice. I just had stitches removed 3 days ago and can't even find a scar without magnifying mirror. Only redness and marks from stitches remain (which is temporary). Good luck and don't worry."


"I have been dealing with Dr. Maydan for quite a number of years. I have always felt she was quite thorough, quite informative, quite patient and quite kind."
