In brief: ACMS members

It is important that you verify that your mohs surgeon is recognized as a fellowship-trained surgeon.
Only members of the american college of mohs surgery (acms) are fellowship trained to perform mohs surgery. All members and fellows of the acms are listed on their website directory. The link to the acms website: http://www.Mohscollege.Org/.

In brief: For Some

It is acceptable for squamous and basal cell carcinomas.
I would advise against having moh's surgery for melanoma.
