Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is an atlas of frozen section tissue typically seen by practicing Mohs surgeons. . Practicing Mohs surgeons and any physicians training in Mohs surgery are the intended audience. . this is a comprehensive collection of high quality photomicrographs. . This should be a required text for all procedural dermatology fellowship programs. . most practicing Mohs surgeons will want a copy for their libraries as well. It is an excellent reference . ."
