My Dad has seen Dr. Uretsky for a growth on his ear that wouldn't heal. It turned out to be skin cancer. The surgery went perfectly, and Dr. Uretsky did a great job. He has always treated my Dad and me with the utmost respect, and he's a genuinely nice man who cares greatly for his patients. I'd highly recommend him.
