About 9,500 individuals are diagnosed with skin cancer every day in the U.S., which is why it is imperative that individuals see the dermatologist at least once a year for skin cancer screening. When diagnosed and treated early, skin cancer may be diminished quickly through in-office skin cancer treatments.
“I would highly recommend Dr. Fichtel. I had seen her years ago just for annual skin checks until she moved out of the area. I have since developed a scalp issue. After several visits to two dermatologist and hundreds of dollars over the course of a few years, I received no relief. I had seen where Dr. Fichtel had moved back and opened her new practice. Best decision to go back to her! She spent so much time with me, listened to my issues and made me feel that I was her only patient. I left her office with a treatment plan that included her own formulated products. After one month, I was cleared of my issue and was beyond ecstatic! She is an amazing doctor and I have never been happier! Do not be turned off by the fact that she does not accept insurance. If you have an HSA plan, you can use that. Most insurance plans are high deductible anyway. Dr. Jill Fichtel, hands down offers the best service you will find any where. The best money I’ve spent in years!” ~ Healthgrades

Skin Cancer Screening Process
Dr. Fichtel is committed to providing the best possible care for her patients, which is why she offers the latest skin cancer screening and treatment technology for benign, precancerous, and cancerous lesions. Skin cancer screening only takes around 10 minutes and if required, the biopsy is a quick and virtually painless scrape pre-treated with a numbing solution. Skin cancer screening provides a sense of assurance to both non-at-risk / at-risk patients.
During a skin cancer screening, the top rated board certified dermatologist will examine your entire body from head to toe while you are wearing a medical gown. This allows the doctor to access all parts of your body, as skin cancer may occur on any part of the body. If the Nashville based board certified dermatologist finds anything of concern, a painless skin biopsy will be taken and sent to a lab for testing. Skin biopsies are performed to ensure that any abnormality on a patient’s skin is harmless.
Skin cancer screening is an important aspect of maintaining your overall health, which is why you should always wear sunscreen (30 SPF or higher), seek shade whenever possible, and wear a hat and/or sunglasses whenever exposed to the sun.
