Sunrise Dermatology Welcomes Fellowship-Trained Mohs Surgeon To Daphne, Al Office Location

Daphne, AL (June 6, 2022) – Sunrise Dermatology is pleased to announce the addition of fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon Dr. Vernon Forrester to its Daphne clinical team.

Forrester completed his fellowship training in Micrographic Surgery & Dermatologic Oncology (Mohs) from the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation and has been at the forefront in the development of the latest and most advanced dermatological treatments and techniques.

“Several of my family members have dealt with skin cancer over the years and that’s what really inspired me to go into dermatology. My goal is to be an advocate for my patients and to make sure they receive the treatment they need,” Forrester said.

Forrester graduated from the University of Virginia with a Distinguished Major Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. He received his medical doctorate from the VCU School of Medicine and completed his residency in dermatology at UVA Health Systems.

With the addition of Dr. Forrester, Sunrise Dermatology has grown to provide the expertise of two Mohs surgeons, allowing them to now offer leading-edge skin cancer treatment full time at both its Daphne and Mobile locations.

“I’ve seen firsthand the patient-centered care that Sunrise Dermatology is known for, as well as the camaraderie among the team, and I look forward to working with them to expand that excellence in care to more communities along the Gulf Coast,” states Forrester.
