About the Doctor
Arianne E. Chavez-Frazier, MD
Skin cancer provides a challenge…removing it can be emotionally distressing to the patient and technically challenging for the surgeon, but the art of reconstruction with minimal scarring is the biggest challenge of them all. As a person driven by challenge, I strive for perfection and outcomes that are always pleasing for every patient.
