"We encourage all of you to come out and get your skin checked at any one of our four offices. It’s simple, it’s easy, it’s free and it’s fast." — Dr. David Adams

Did you know that one in 50 Americans will develop melanoma in their lifetime? If caught in the early stages, melanoma is entirely treatable — but it does spread quickly. Early detection and treatment are vital to survival.

In an effort to encourage annual skin checks and melanoma awareness, the American Academy of Dermatology designates the first Monday of May as “Melanoma Monday.” Coastal Skin Surgery & Dermatology will be offering FREE SKIN CANCER SCREENINGS for the community on Monday, May 7, 2018, from 1-4 p.m. Stop by one of our four locations — Miramar Beach/Destin, Niceville/Bluewater Bay, Fort Walton Beach or Panama City Beach — to see one of our board-certified dermatologists.
