The Dermatology Service offers a Skin Cancer Screening Clinic
twice each year. One clinic is held in May each year. The other is
scheduled for September or October. We do not require a consult for you
to be seen in this screening clinic, but we do require that you call
Tricare and get an appointment. During this screening clinic we are only
able to evaluate you for skin cancers. We will not be able to refill
medications or assist you with any other skin problems. If a skin cancer
is discovered during this screening we will make arrangements to have it
taken care of promptly.
