How do you know if it’s skin cancer?
Nick Grimm, a dermatology services provider with Plastic Surgery & Skin Care Specialists by BayCare Clinic, recommends knowing your ABCD and E’s

It's not symmetrical. Half of the spot doesn't match the other.

D - Diameter
Is the size of the spot larger, or growing larger, than 1/4 inch?

Our patients' stories
One of our patients, N.K., who is 35, had this to say about Nick Grimm, PA-C, our dermatology services provider:
“(He) was extremely friendly and very easy to talk with. He explained the punch procedure in terms I could understand and discussed other options with me and why they were good or bad. When asked to look at two other spots I was embarrassed to ask about over the phone he gladly looked at them and provided treatment that worked. He didn't rush me out of the office and even followed up personally two or three days after to see how things were going. I have almost no scar and since my spot removed was in my starting hair line, he did everything to make sure it was non-noticeable. I came home and recommended him to my wife immediately."
