DermSurgery Associates recently welcomed a pair of board-certified dermatologists and fellowship-trained Mohs surgery specialists to their team. Dr. Sonal Parikh and Dr. Nhan (Nick) Nguyen will see general and cosmetic dermatology patients and perform Mohs surgery at DermSurgery’s locations in The Woodlands and Willowbrook. They will also see individuals who need Mohs surgery at the Sugar Land location.
Both Dr. Parikh and Dr. Nguyen recently completed their fellowship training at Houston Methodist Hospital’s ACGME Accredited Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Fellowship under the direction of Dr. Leonard Goldberg, who is recognized internationally as one of the leading experts in Mohs surgery and who is the President of DermSurgery Associates.
