"I would recommend SkinMD to anyone. They are caring, compassionate and thorough from the front desk, to their PAs, to their Medical Assistants, to the doctors. Dr. Xia did my Mohs surgery and followed up that evening to check on me at home. Weatherford is so fortunate to have them. Thanks SkinMD. ❤️"


Office Visit

"I'm very pleased with everyone and everything at Skin MD Clinic. From the consult to the surgery to the last visit for stitches removal, couldn't be more pleased. My surgeon, Dr. Xia, even called me later the day of surgery to see how I was doing. I appreciated it. Can't think of one negative in the whole process."

"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!!"
