Skin biopsies can detect or rule out multiple skin conditions. Our experienced dermatologists make this procedure painless and seamless with a local anesthetic and quick results.
Full Body Skin Exams
A simple and necessary visual exam by our dermatologists will thoroughly check your skin all over including your scalp and between your toes for any abnormalities.
Also called Mohs Micrographic surgery, or Mohs skin cancer surgery, this process has the highest cure rate and the lowest recurrence rate of any skin cancer excision.
Pre-Cancer Treatments - Cryotherapy and Chemical Peels
Cryotherapy and chemical peels are just two of the ways we can treat pre-cancerous skin lesions, as well as a variety of topical conditions effectively.
Mole & Skin Tag Removal
If a mole, beauty mark, skin tag, or other benign, not dangerous spot, is bothering you, let us remove it quickly and safely. Clear away undesirable spots and get right back to your day with a mole removal procedure.
Plastic Surgery Reconstruction
It’s extremely important to have a well-trained and highly experienced doctor fix the hole in your skin left by removing the skin cancer. Dr. Mario is one of the best trained and high-volume Mohs surgeons in the United States.

What Makes Us Different
At Southern Skies Dermatology, we feel that the best way to create a first-class experience for our patients is to first create a first-class experience for our employees. By prioritizing our work culture and making Southern Skies Dermatology and Surgery a positive, fun, rewarding place to work – we believe that we attract exceptional employees.
Our practice administrator, Michelle Flowers, once told Dr. Mario, that we have to make sure we don’t “overwork and underpay” our staff or they won’t take pride in working here, and they won’t stick around for the long haul. Dr. Mario took that to heart and wanted to go even further.
We reward our team with free take-out for lunch every Thursday (group vote decision), a spin-the-wheel birthday prize, quarterly cash rewards for being a reliably consistent employee, regular raises, unexpected bonuses for exceptional performance, and a healthy Christmas bonus, as well as a fabulously fun Christmas party.
Phenomenal patient care comes from a team that is invested and ready to contribute to our practice. We’ve built a work family that includes doctors, advanced practice providers, front office staff, medical assistants, billing staff, laboratory personnel, many wonderful local vendors, and most importantly our patients whom we are extremely proud of.
