Dr. Yang Xia

Meet Dr. Yang Xia

Dr. Yang Xia (pronounced like "Shaw") proudly served as a Major in the United States Army in San Antonio, TX. He currently serves as a director of both Mohs Surgery and The Dermatology Vein Clinic at the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center.

He is a faculty member of the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX. He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2011 at Bagram Airfield where he was awarded The Bronze Star Medal for his service in the Craig Joint Theater Hospital.

Dr. Xia graduated as salutatorian at the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY. He received his medical degree from the Uniform Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, MD. He completed his dermatology training at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the Bethesda Naval Hospital. His Mohs surgery fellowship was with Dr. Hugh Greenway at the Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, CA.

Not only has Dr. Xia performed more than 1,500 Mohs micrographic surgeries and 1300+ complicated wound repairs with cutaneous flaps and skin grafts, but he is also an accomplished scholar with more than 20 peer-reviewed publications.


"How amazing that the doctor himself will call that evening to see how you are doing after surgery. He performed close to 60 surgeries in three days! That is one of the many reasons I like this dermatology office so much. Kudos to Lee, the "man of the day" in the office."



"I was concerned that the scar on my forehead would be a serious mistake after having a 1-1/2” circle cut into my forehead. However, it was and is invisible. They did a fabulous job. Thanks to Miranda and the surgeon Dr Xia (Shaw). Super staff!!"



"Best experience I've had with a dermatologist in 16 years of needing skin cancer care. Dr. Xia is considerate and caring to a patient's needs. He performed a long, complicated MOHS surgery on my forehead. I was not new to MOHS, this was my third. The first was performed by a surgeon in another city and nothing about that experience left me willing to be proactive about my dermatology care. My follow-up appointments with Dr. Xia by comparison have been pleasant and helpful, which makes me a more compliant patient. As his patient, I felt listened to because he shows genuine concern for what you're asking or feeling unsure about. I'm very thankful to have had Dr. Xia as my surgeon and my follow-up dermatologist."



"Dr. Xia defines the highest quality of patient care. Professional, knowledgable, and personable. In my opinion, Dr. Xia is one of the finest MDs available."
