Our Mission

Village Dermatology’s mission is to provide The Villages® and the surrounding tri-county areas with progressive, accessible, and compassionate dermatological care with specialization in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer.

Our Promise

At Village Dermatology, our diagnoses are made independently by a board certified dermatopathologist. Patients are provided with treatment options that are based on evidence-based medicine.

Our Philosophy

We believe in education to prevent skin cancer, early detection, and effective treatment.

World Class Skin Cancer Care, Close to Home!

Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery brings local, national, and international skin cancer expert Dr. Thi Tran to Florida’s Friendliest Active Adult Retirement Community. Our office is centrally located in The Villages® and we are easily accessible by car, as well as by a golf cart.


Skin Cancer Specialists 

Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery offers full spectrum adult dermatologic care, which includes treating various conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. Beyond adult dermatology, Dr. Tran’s training allows us to specialize in skin cancer care. We excel at offering patients guidance and support through early skin cancer detection, diagnosis, and timely treatment.


Patient-Centered Care 

Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery believes in care that is patient-focused rather than problem-focused. Our patients are offered a thorough, comprehensive skin examination during their appointment. Our staff dedicates time to fully answer and address any and all questions, and concerns. Patients are sent home with literature on sun protection, home screening, skin cancer detection, and other topics.

In addition, our structure allows Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery  to offer unparalleled continuity of patient care. Our practice is housed at a single location, which allows patients to consistently see the same physician, mid-level practitioner, and office staff. Dr. Tran has dual board-certification in Dermatology and Mohs micrographic surgery, which allows us to work with patients from the initial appointment through post-surgical follow-up.

Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery’s firm “No-Sales Policy” means we only offer you an unbiased opinion on your best treatment option. Our practice has no products to push or sell. Instead, we focus on evaluating the latest medical protocols available to offer to our patients. Our practice is an early adopter of new guidelines, technology, and treatments, provided that any new medical and surgical techniques have the support of evidence-based medicine and help us maintain the highest standard of patient care possible.

Community Outreach 

Village Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery works with a number of organizations whose mission and philosophy fit in with our own. We believe it is our corporate responsibility to support local businesses and organizations that foster all-around healthy well-being. Dr. Tran has been invited to give educational lectures on skin care to community groups, and we have donated to local churches (Amazing Grace Lutheran Church, North Lake Presbyterian Church), food banks (Deliver the Difference, Wildwood Soup Kitchen, St. Vincent de Paul Society), and youth organizations (Big Sun Youth Soccer League, Tutors for Kids). Playing an active role in charitable works is an integral part of our service to The Villages© community as a whole.
