I believe in patient focused, indi­vid­u­al­ized care that involves edu­cat­ing patients on their diag­noses, devel­op­ing an indi­vid­ual treat­ment plan and fos­ter­ing patient sat­is­fac­tion. I encour­age patients to ask ques­tions and under­stand the man­age­ment of their skin can­cers or oth­er skin conditions.

"Dr. Vanessa Lichon and her staff, both medical, and front office, were very professional, friendly and courteous. The information provided post procedure was clear with photos. Local anesthesia levels were maintained for a pain-free experience. Dr. Lichon provided her cell phone number for any questions after the office was closed. This was reassuring given the surgery was done just prior to a long Christmas weekend."

"My procedure was performed early in the morning. At about 5:30pm, Dr. Lichon called me personally to ask how I was doing. I can't remember any doctor ever checking in on me personally. Her attention and concern were beyond any expectations and were most appreciated. I will never forget that phone call."
