Sue Timm - Healthgrades Review

Dr. Timani is wonderful. She is so compassionate and knowledgeable. My family has a history of a lot of skin cancer and my brother died at 54 from Melanoma. I have had Squamous Cell Carcinoma and have a great deal of precancerous damaged skin. Dr. Timani is treating it aggressively and she is thorough and supportive. I moved to GA in June 2018 and feel so blessed to have found her.

Our journey together.


THE CARING DIFFERENCE

We know that skin cancer can be very stressful. This is why we make sure you leave Springs Dermatology MD feeling safe, reassured, and truly cared for. A diagnosis of skin cancer can be overwhelming, so we have made the entire process very convenient: skin cancer identification, skin cancer diagnosis, and skin cancer treatment all performed here at our office in Sandy Springs and Metro Atlanta. We genuinely care about you and meticulously follow up to ensure that you remain cancer free. We emphasize prevention and thorough body checks, and approach skin cancers in a very comprehensive fashion.



THE TREATMENT DIFFERENCE


Luckily, skin cancers are visible and hence can be detected early by monitoring the skin for any changes in size, shape, color, and border. There are also subtypes of unique skin cancers:


  • More common non-melanoma skin cancers are usually caused by excessive sun exposure, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.
  • The most common is basal cell carcinoma which is least likely to metastasize, (but can grow into deeper tissue if left untreated).
  • The second most common type, squamous cell carcinoma, is rarer, and around 30% metastasize.
  • The least common is melanoma, which will metastasize if left untreated and can even be fatal. Early treatment can prevent it from spreading to the lymph nodes. 


Skin cancers are treated according to their stage and severity. At Springs Dermatology MD, we take your cancer very seriously and strive to recommend the safest and most effective treatment options for you based on your medical history, general health, the cancer’s location, the cancer’s size, and other key aspects. Our expertise in dermatopathology, general surgery and Mohs surgery at Springs Dermatology MD in Sandy Springs, Metro Atlanta offers you the highest chance of a cure and living a long and fulfilling life.
