Welcome to Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery!
Thank you for taking the time to visit Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery! We know that you have worked hard to get where you are now, and we also know that quality of life is important to you. That is why you chose to live in such a thriving and active community. Our practice can support you in maintaining your healthy lifestyle by addressing your skin care and dermatologic needs here in The Villages, Florida.
Why make a skin care priority? The Surgeon General calls skin cancer a “major public health problem.” Skin cancer rates are on the rise. Living in a warm, sunny climate makes Villagers particularly susceptible to skin cancer. We are exposed everywhere, whether poolside, on the golf course, or just going out to get the mail.
Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer, with about 5 million new cases diagnosed each year. Skin cancer can be dangerous or even deadly if not diagnosed and treated in time. The good news is that skin cancer is also very preventable. The simplest action you can take is to wear a broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen every day. Limit sun exposure, especially during the hottest part of the day, wear sunglasses to protect your eyes and see a dermatologist if you notice any changes or abnormalities in your skin.
That is where our practice comes in. Dr. Thi Tran and the Village Dermatology team is here to help keep your skin healthy so you can continue to enjoy all The Villages has to offer. This website will tell you a little bit about our practice, our staff, and our methods. We also have a patient resources page so that you can begin your journey to healthier skin today. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to set up an appointment today.
You have earned your retirement, let us help you enjoy it skin cancer free!
This is an open letter to all Villagers who have or are susceptible to that dreaded, “Skin Cancer”. Hardly a day goes by that I do not encounter someone that has that telltale bandage, covering up the works of perhaps the most skilled Dermatologist in all the South East, and maybe even the Country.
Dr. Tran has been my friend and Doctor since I arrived with a healthy growth of skin cancer from Pittsburgh. My GP said he had heard some really good things about the “new guy”, but had no personal experience with him.
I contacted his office for an appointment, and after visiting with him for a few minutes, I knew he was the man for me. I had grown up in an Osteopathic environment and knew his expertise must be substantially better than the regular MD who specialized in Dermatology.
I must have been a case study for all the various issues he discovered. I am now approaching 80, he has removed parts of my ear, nose, both arms and left leg, yet I am still here and I get to play Golf a bit, but I take much more precaution than I did when I was a Cancer Grower, 65 years ago. Go See Him!Bill Danner
