Forefront Dermatology opens location on Crooks Avenue offering life-saving Mohs surgery
KAUKAUNA — Residents of Kaukauna and surrounding communities have a new option to get annual skin exams, cancer screenings and treatment for a variety of skin conditions and skin disorders.
Forefront Dermatology, a growing dermatology practice owned and operated by physicians has opened its clinic at 2700 Crooks Avenue, Suite 101, in Kaukauna. This is the first dermatology clinic to open in the city, offering both medical and surgical care, including Mohs surgery for the treatment of skin cancer, according to a news release.
Katz earned his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin and completed his residency in dermatology, as chief resident, at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics.
Smith earned his medical degree from the University of Michigan and served as chief resident for the dermatology program. He is also a board-certified Mohs surgeon. Physician assistant Hillary Ahola rounds out the medical staff.
The team is equipped and trained to detect and treat a variety of conditions and disorders including rosacea, eczema and atopic dermatitis, acne, psoriasis, vitiligo, warts, molluscum, skin allergies, and rashes. They also have the capability of detecting skin cancers, and treating the two most common forms—basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas— with the highly effective Mohs micrographic surgery.
“Forefront Dermatology is delighted to now be seeing patients in Kaukauna and the surrounding areas to help identify and solve their skin-care concerns,” said Katz. “We anticipate the location will be more convenient for many people who live in southeast Appleton and the surrounding rural communities.”
