Crescent DermSurgery is a spacious 4400 square foot facility in Metairie, which is easily accessible from the greater New Orleans area and its surrounding parishes. Detailed directions
to our facility can be found in the Contact Us section of the website.
Our facility offers easy front door parking, which makes it easy for patients to get into and out of the clinic. They won’t have to deal with parking garages and other hassles associated with larger hospital based facilities. We also have two patient waiting areas to ensure their time with us is comfortable. One patient waiting area has a television so your patient can watch some TV or socialize with their family members while they await their results. We also have another quiet waiting area with recliners where your patient can just relax and read or nap. We have three minor procedure rooms and two larger procedure areas. This gives us ample space to take care of your patients in an unencumbered and safe manner.
Our lab is CLIA certified so you know that your lab specimens are being prepared to the highest standards. While we have the amenities that can be found in larger hospital based clinics, our facility is still an outpatient clinic based facility. This means that we provide your patients with excellent care without charging hospital based facility fees, which can substantially increase the cost burden of the procedure.
Crescent DermSurgery also has a sister facility in Gulfport, Mississippi to provide the same level of service to the people whom require our services along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. To learn more about our Gulfport location, please click the following link www.moderndermgulfport.com
Crescent DermSurgery is dedicated strictly to providing Mohs micrographic surgery to your patients that need that service. We do not offer general dermatologic services or offer cosmetic services or products. This is done in an effort to provide a spirit of true collaboration with our referring physicians. This allows us to concentrate strictly on the treatment of skin cancer and allows our referring physician to focus on the dermatologic care of their patients.
If you wish to send a patient to us for treatment of their skin cancer, there are a number of ways to do so. First, you can reach our office via phone. Our number is 504-570-6370. You can arrange for your patient to call us to set up an appointment or we will call them directly per your preference. Second, you can fax the patient’s demographics and relevant pathology report and we will contact the patient directly to set up a consult and/or surgery. Our fax number is 504-570-6372. Upon receipt of the fax, we will make the appropriate arrangements and inform you when the patient is coming in for evaluation or surgery.
When the patient comes in for their Mohs surgery, we usually repair the resultant defect in our office. In some instances, the referring physician may prefer to do the repair themselves. If this is the case, simply call the office or state that preference when you fax the patient’s demographics and pathology report. We will coordinate the Mohs surgery and the subsequent repair with your office.
In all cases, upon completion of their Mohs surgery, the patient will be referred back to your office for their continued care. Our office will provide a clinical summary upon completion of the patient’s surgical care. We will continue to follow the patient in the postoperative period to monitor the progress of the surgeries that we performed. Upon completion of their postoperative surveillance, the patient will be returned completely to your care. We are always happy to follow up with patients after they have been discharged to your care, if that is the desire of the referring physician.
