About Us


The South Florida Skin Center is dedicated to providing patients with access to high-quality, dermatologic care. We believe that providing high-quality care is not only about clinical treatment, and medical advice, but also about the relationships we cultivate with our patients. We continue to strive to be a leader in innovative medical practices based on true dermatologic science and are fully commited to providing the best care possible for our patients.


The South Florida Skin Center was started in 1993 to provide care for the residents of Port Charlotte, and the south Florida area. Thanks to our encouraging patients and supportive staff, the South Florida Skin Center has become a leading dermatologic surgery center, providing the most comprehensive skin cancer care and treatment in Charlotte, and surrounding counties.
