LAKE CHARLES, La.—Lee Miller, MD, a board certified dermatologist specializing in Mohs micrographic surgery, is now practicing medicine with the Dermatology Associates of Southwest Louisiana.
Dr. Miller, a Lake Charles native, is a graduate of Barbe High School. He completed his undergraduate studies in biological engineering at Louisiana State University and received his medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport, where he also completed an internship in internal medicine.
He performed his residency in dermatology at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston Salem, N.C., where he served as chief resident. He most recently completed a fellowship in procedural dermatology at Scripps Green Hospital in La Jolla, Calif.
Dr. Miller is the only Mohs surgeon in the area. This specialized surgical technique is used to remove skin cancer. The procedure offers the highest cure rates for common types of skin cancer and allows the physician to preserve more healthy tissue around the lesion than any other method. He will also perform general dermatology as well as some cosmetic dermatology.
Dr. Miller and his wife Amy, also from Lake Charles, are expecting their first child this fall. He is excited to be back in his hometown and is looking forward to giving back to the community as well as getting out on area waterways to fish and water ski.
