Our Care Philosophy

We believe in the power of healthy. At Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute, we understand that getting outdoors to enjoy the extraordinary beauty of this region is essential for a person’s well-being.

We also understand that maintaining an active outdoor lifestyle can pose serious threats to otherwise healthy skin because of the additional exposure to ultraviolet radiation. That’s why we provide comprehensive, highly personalized care for patients of all ages and skin types.

You have a choice when you decide on a dermatological provider.

Your skin is something that requires and deserves the utmost care from top specialists and the best technology to help care for it. Additionally, the continuous care across various areas from medical dermatology to dermatopathology to cosmetic treatments is something unique that only our practice can offer in the area.

Our entire team at Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute focuses on patient care — from our Dermatologists to our receptionists. We strive to make your visit to any of our locations as comfortable as possible by treating you like more than a patient; we treat you like family.

We often hear our patients say, “They really do care.” We believe this is because we focus on showing care with every interaction, so our patients experience a truly genuine approach to healthcare.

We take the time to develop relationships with our patients, and they trust in our ability to educate, counsel, and advise them because they know we care. We also thoughtfully and clearly explain options and address your concerns, so you feel informed prior to moving forward with any treatment or procedure.

We take patient satisfaction seriously, always going above and beyond.

And when it comes to cosmetic dermatology needs, we believe in enhancing your beauty…not altering it, so your true beauty shines through with every treatment.

You’ll get first-hand details from travel bloggers, ambitious locals, and expert adventurers on how to get there, what to do, when to do it, and why you should consider doing it again (whatever that special “IT” is).


We’re not sure ‘off season’ is the best name for fall in Reno Tahoe. Most of us would agree that the cooler temps, sunny days and changing leaves make it one of the best times to visit. It’s the ideal time to head out for a lakeside picnic or bike ride through the sparkling aspen trees.


It’s time to live a little. Or a lot. In Reno Tahoe, there are no limited when it comes to adventure, even if you only have a weekend. If your ideal day involves clipping in, casting a line or sipping a cold one, you’re in the right place. The crew from Outbound Collective will show you how to maximize every moment of your getaway with the best places to hike, fish, climb and of course, grab that well-deserved après adventure treat.


From the energy of downtown Reno to the peace of Black Rock Desert, Reno Tahoe provides unlimited potential for art and exploration. Paint the town, light up the night or search for your creative spark – let your creative imagination run wild with the crew from Matador Network.


Craving some down time? We’ve got you covered. We know, we brag a lot about the endless things to do in Reno Tahoe, but it’s also a great place to chill out. Wake up each day without a packed itinerary and see where the city takes you. A wander through downtown and Midtown will deliver delightful surprises, like public art and cozy coffee shops. It’s time to carve out some time for yourself.


Is it too soon to start thinking about snow days? Never! With the largest concentration of ski resorts in the country, many within an hour’s drive from downtown Reno, we’re always dreaming of winter. And now that the days are getting cooler, those dreams are getting closer by the day. Join this group of friends to find pristine backcountry slopes, leaving plenty of time to enjoy fire pits, pools and even some virtual reality action.
