John-R-WestMeet Dr. West

As a dedicated physician, Dr. West finds his work tremendously rewarding as he is able to eradicate skin cancer effectively and help patients look and feel better. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology as well as a fellow of the prestigious American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology. Dr. West received his Mohs fellowship training under the direction of Richard G. Bennett, M.D. at the University of Southern California where he was appointed Assistant Clinical Professor. He then affiliated with West Dermatology, a practice in southern California founded by his father. Dr. West has performed thousands of Mohs surgeries and reconstructions and is recognized as an expert in the field.

Relocating to Mystic and establishing Seaport Dermatology is the fulfillment of Dr. West’s dream to have his own practice in New England where his wife spent her childhood and where they are delighted to raise their children.
