What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

I always treat my patients like family. I evaluate and diagnose a new patient’s problem and then discuss the treatment options in detail and answer any questions the patient may have.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

I strongly recommend patients search for a Fellowship-Trained Mohs Skin Cancer Surgeon. The extra year of training, called a Fellowship, is vital in developing the highest level of skill in diagnosis of skin cancer, in reading skin cancer pathology under the microscope, and in surgical and reconstructive techniques. Additionally, a fellowship emphasizes all aspects of cutaneous oncology including management of high-risk tumors.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

My desire to make a difference and truly help people as modeled by my father, Dr. Varun Saxena, inspired my decision to be physician. I was drawn to dermatology because of the visual and tangible nature of the field. During my residency, I was drawn to dermatologic surgery because of my passion for cutaneous oncology and my desire to learn the amazing surgical skills of my mentors who could cure cancer and perform beautiful skin repairs with minimal scarring all under local anesthesia in the safety of a medical outpatient office.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

Mohs skin cancer surgery and reconstruction is my true passion in the surgical dermatology field. Over the last few years, I have also become incredibly passionate about hair regeneration. We offer comprehensive medical consultations for hair loss and I now perform injections of platelet-rich-plasma for patients to stimulate hair growth. We have had great success and happy patients!

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

The best reaction I can get from a patient is the referral of a family member or friend.

What makes your business stand apart?

My husband, dermatologist Dr. David Kasper, and I run our practice like a family business. We have a wonderful and caring staff who are very skilled and experienced. We stand apart because we always put the patient first.

What should patients know about your pricing?

We accept many insurances that cover medical issues in dermatology. Our cosmetic fees are very competitive for our area. Dr. Aradhna Saxena personally does all of our botox and filler treatments.

How many years have you been in business?

10 years

What do patients have to say about you?

"I found Dr. Saxena’s service and staff to be fantastic. They treated me like one of the family. My MOHS was performed on January 30th 2019. My appt was for 10:40 AM and I was out of the office before 2:00 PM. My area above the right ear was scrapped, biopsied, stitched, bandaged in less than 3 hours. The doctor and staff did marvelous work. Today, February 5, I feel and look great. I highly recommend her office for the services they do."

"Dr. Saxena is an incredibly caring and brilliant surgeon. She made me feel at ease right away and her staff were comforting and kind. I highly recommend Dr. Saxena!"

"This is the second time I’ve had Mohs surgery in the last 7 years done by Dr Saxena. From the time I made the appointment until my stitches were removed a week after the surgery I felt truly cared for. Not just by the Doctor but also her staff. Very professional and yet personal."
