5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal

Mole Removal and Post Op Laser Treatment. Issaquah, WA

I was advised by a third party to obtain a skin check and this led to the removal of several abnormal moles. Dr Michalak gave a detailed explanation as to the pros and cons of removal and why it was important to act on the results obtained and the best timeframe in which to do so. I followed up the removal with a laser treatment to minimise scarring.

Skin Cancer and Mole Removals - Issaquah, WA

I have been seeing Dr. Michalak for over 10 years due to numerous squamous, basal cell and atypical nevi (moles). I continue to see him annually for a number of reasons: 1) His surgical skills are to the highest standards. With as many as 10 facial skin cancer removals in one year, others can not see any of the incisions even if looking. The cancers were removed the first time. He selects...

Fraxel Laser - Issaquah, WA

Dr. Michalak and team did a wonderful job. I was very happy with the outcome and my face looks years younger! The team was very patient and explained everything to me and the benefits of the procedure. They answered my questions and I was confident it was the right approach. Afterwards I'm glad I did it. My face looks fresh and young.

Melanoma - Issaquah, WA

Without reservation, I would recommend Dr. Victor Michalak and the medical/business staff of Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology of Issaquah, Inc. To a person, they are very professional, kind, patient, attentive, and willing to share their knowledge and time. In the modern practice of medicine, this is a rare experience and I consider it a privilege to be included among their patients.

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Mohs on Both Temples for Basil Cell - Issaquah, WA

Had both temples done at the same time. While the procedure was extensive (3 days including the closing of each temple on separate days) I was made as comfortable as possible. All steps of the procedure were explained fully and I was given all medications required to ensure my comfort during and after the procedures. Dr. Michalak and all of his medical assistants worked very professionally...
