*** Please note that Dr. Dhir's heavy surgical schedule necessitates very limited clinic availability. As a result, he cannot serve as the primary dermatologist for patients. Patients are referred to him only for specialized surgical treatment of specific skin cancers. We apologize that his schedule cannot accommodate patients needing routine skin exams, biopsies, or assistance with general dermatology issues.
