He is past president of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery.

Every dermatologist has access to the same products and treatments, but it takes a true artist, with skill and empathy, to create beautiful, natural-looking results.

The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery ( ASDS) has awarded him the Samuel J.
