The team at the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center understands you have choices regarding choosing a dermatology practice to handle your skin care needs. When you seek the right practice for you, you are not simply selecting a physician but the entire team that operates the practice. The dedication put forth by the whole staff at the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center is there to make sure that every patient experiences a visit that is not only medically beneficial but also pleasant and informative.
We want every patient to make the most informed decision they can when choosing what dermatological care they receive. We provide educational literature, videos, and classes that will provide the latest information so our patients can make these choices.
Every member here at the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center has received extensive training and provides highly professional and top-quality care. Our team consists of at least one of the following:
- Physician Assistant
- Registered Nurse

- Support Staff
Every member of our team has dedicated themselves to providing personalized and compassionate care. We feel every patient deserves to feel like they are truly being listened to and understood as they express their needs. We also want them to feel safe during every procedure while we provide efficient and professional care.
Physician Assistant – Suzanne Brook

Mohs Skin Cancer Surgery Specialist – Dr. Gina Marrero
We are incredibly pleased to offer Mohs skin cancer surgery to our patients as performed by Dr. Gina Marrero. Dr. Marrero is a magna cum laude medical graduate of the SUNY at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, which she attended after receiving her undergraduate at Cornell University. Dr. Marrero then took part in an internship in pediatrics at Yale-New Haven Hospital and, from there, moved into her residency in dermatology at Brown University. Dr. Marrero pursued her education in Mohs micrographic surgery through a fellowship at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. She is committed to residency education and taught in the Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Clinic at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center. Her focus continues to be cutaneous oncology and the treatment of skin cancer with Mohs surgery.
Once Dr. Marrero has completely removed the skin cancer from a patient, she hands things over to our very well-esteemed Dr. Ian Bourhill, who performs the necessary plastic surgery after the Mohs has been completed. Mohs surgical procedures, on average, lasts from one to one and a half hours.
