Highly recommended

Being fair skinned, a baseball player when younger and golfer when older, I've been treated by Dr. Lahti numerous times for skin cancer. He is highly skilled, experienced & friendly, and that goes for his staff as well. Highly recommended.

Dr. Lahti and his team are wonderfully skilled, companionate, empathetic group! The office makes sure the needs of their patient's are met, even providing hot beverages, snacks, reading material and a T.V for those who need to wait for biopsies to be processed. Dr. Lahti himself contacted my mother later in the day to make sure she was doing well and if she had any questions or concerns. The office team contacted my mother not only the day after her procedure but two days post procedure again to check in and make sure she was doing well and not having any difficulties or needs. I am overwhelmed by the care and concern of this doctor and his team. Highly recommend this skilled physician and his team and commend them for the EXCELLANT care and support they offer their patients.

He was very busy the day of my appointment. I should have made another appointment and came back on a different day. Scar is very visable. I might need plastic surgery.

Very Impressed with Dr. Lahti and his staff

I was very impressed with Dr. Lahti skill. I had a facial basal cell carcinoma on my right check and there is virtually no visable scar. The office personel are very friendly, caring and professional. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs this service.
