FORT MYERS, Fla., April 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and the American Academy of Dermatology reports that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. With over 5 million cases diagnosed in the United States each year, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the country. Fortunately, skin cancers are easily treated if diagnosed early.
In 2018 Riverchase Dermatology was named top practice and top skin cancer screener in the U.S. by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery for the fourth consecutive year and is once again opening its doors to new patients of the practice for a complimentary skin cancer screening throughout the month of May. Riverchase is proudly offering 623 screening appointments throughout 24 locations, with 25 providers participating.

We are excited about the opportunity to give back to our communities and look forward to hosting the most successful screening event in Riverchase history!" says Andrew T. Jaffe, M.D., FAAD, Chief Medical Officer.
