Meet Matthew Hand, MD, FAAD

Board Certified Mohs Surgeon, Cosmetic Surgeon

Patient Testimonial: "Dr. Hand performed Mohs on my face in November 2021. Dr. Hand was kind, compassionate, and honest. He took the time to explain the procedure and the recovery process. I am thrilled and grateful that after one month of having the procedure the deep incision on my cheek is healing beyond my expectations. I would not hesitate to have Dr. Hand perform Mohs or any medical/plastic surgery on my face. It's traumatic enough being diagnosed with skin cancer and living with the emotional wound. Thomas Dermatology knows this and has a gifted, skilled, and competent surgeon in Dr. Hand."
