Fortunately, early diagnostic options are available.

A specialist in the early diagnosis and treatment of pigmented lesions, Dr. Shim uses extensive total body photography and sequential dermoscopy to monitor atypical moles (nevi). Dr. Shim’s 60-minute total body examinations are among the most detailed and comprehensive, during which she maps moles for monitoring or treatment. For precancerous lesions (actinic keratoses), she employs photodynamic therapy (PDT) to reduce the risk of cutaneous cancer.
