David B. Pharis, M.D., P.C. Skin Cancer and Dermatologic Surgery


As a retired RN with 40 years in the front lines, I knew what to expect from the Mohs surgery I was scheduled to undergo. What I did not know was the very high level of competence, friendliness, compassion and caring all of his staff exhibited while I was there. I can honestly say they are the best!!!

Dr. Pharis and his staff were wonderful from pre-visit to post visit. I work in the Healthcare IT field and as much as patient-centric care is talked about, I don't often experience it. Dr. Pharis and his team are the exception and exemplify patient-centric care.

I have had too many occasions over the years to utilize Dr. Dave's skilled services. Every time I have been treated with professionalism and courtesy by the entire staff and I would highly recommend this group to anyone in need of the best Moh's surgery practice!

I am so thankful to have had Dr. Pharis perform my Mohs surgery. He is extremely competent as a physician, and is also a man with wonderful humanity. He makes sure that you're comfortable and walks you through your procedure from start to finish. You can't help but feel at ease, as well as confident in his skill. In all, he sets the bar very high for other physicians and I for one wish more doctors were like him.

I was very happy with my experience with Dr. Pharis and his staff. I was afraid, mostly because I was facing an unknown. I had never needed Dermatologic surgery, but the staff put me at such ease, even before I saw Dr. Pharis, and then he also made me feel as though I was in good hands. I liked the fact that he explained everything to me before, during, and after the procedure. I have already made a recommendation to a friend. I will see Dr. Pharis again, without reluctance, if the need ever arises again. My visit was a positive one. Thank you!!

My husband got a melanoma diagnosis on the Friday before Labor Day. We spent an agonizing 4 days worrying about what stage it might be. Dr. Pharis' office called us early Tuesday morning, got us right in, did the "procedure". I cannot say enough nor can my husband about how outstanding this Doctor and his staff are. Their efficiency, the upbeat office atmosphere, no long wait was remarkable. Dr. Pharis and his nurse are so skilled! They so instantly quelled our fears that we are still asking 3 days later why oh why can't more doctors these days be this way! I 100% recommend this Doctor!

Having seen Dr. Pharis for a second time for Mohs surgery I can honestly say they are the best!!! From the check in to the surgery, everyone is really caring. The surgery is done with such care and relatively pain free and recovery is not bad either.

Staff was very friendly and made you feel at home. Dr. Pharis and his staff made you feel safe and reassured you that everything was going to be ok. He answered all of my questions prior to the procedure. He took the time to call me later in the day to see how I was doing. Thank you for making my visit a positive one.

Very impressed with Dr. Pharis and his staff. From my first phone call thru the entire procedure, everything was great. Have never had a better experience at any doctor's office. Truly professional, excellent communication and service at the highest level. The home telephone call from Dr. Pharis the night after my procedure showed that I was really cared for as a patient. Very comforting. Highest recommendations

Absolutely the most professional, courteous, and caring doctor and staff that I have ever experienced. From the moment I opened the door I felt complete confidence in the skills and performance of this doctor and his staff. The procedure was complete, pain free, and executed perfectly. Kudos to Dr. Pharis and his staff.
