An Important Message from Dr. Benjamin Reinhardt

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month! Did you know 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer? At Vanguard Dermatology, we recognize the risk of skin cancer and encourage everyone 18 and older to get an annual skin check. By seeing your dermatologist once a year, you can prevent skin cancer and get an early diagnosis if something does develop. Annual checks are even more vital for those with a history of sunburns, tanning, or skin cancer. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Schedule your annual skin check today!
