About Us

The most surgically advanced dermatology group in Arizona

We are a full service dermatology group servicing the greater Phoenix area. We offer general dermatology, surgical services, as well as aesthetic treatments like Botox, Dysport, filler, micro-needling and chemical peels. 

Affiliated Dermatology’s goal is to provide our patients with the highest quality of care and expertise. We are the only practice in Arizona with nine Mohs surgeons. Mohs surgery is the gold standard of care for many patients diagnosed with skin cancer. We take pride in providing the best care possible for our patients.

Early detection is key to saving lives. Annual complete body skin examinations by the doctors at Affiliated Dermatology can help in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. Affiliated Dermatology also specializes in the treatment of malignant melanoma by using the specialized technique of slow Mohs surgery. Slow Mohs surgery is a skin sparing procedure that allows for the recognition of pigmented cells unlike frozen sections which are utilized with regular Mohs surgery. It is the definitive surgical technique for complete removal of malignant melanomas while simultaneously sparing normal tissue.

Affiliated Dermatology prides itself on its community involvement and partnerships with other healthcare institutions that better our community. We have an accredited dermatology residency program with Midwestern Medical University and HonorHealth. Dr. Richard Averitte, CEO and Managing Partner of Affiliated Dermatology, also established the Arizona Skin Cancer Foundation in 2011 to provide financial assistance to people with skin cancer who cannot otherwise afford treatment. Community education and awareness, treatment and prevention are key goals of the foundation. Events like our annual 5K help raise money to fight skin cancer within our community.
