Quality, Experience, and Compassion

Anir Dhir, M.D. Tucson's Top Rated Mohs Surgeon

Anir Dhir, MD, FACMS

Dr. Anir Dhir was born in Detroit to immigrant parents from Germany and India. After graduating with a B.S. in Biomedical & Electrical Engineering with honors from the University of Texas at Austin, he attended Baylor College of Medicine, where he was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha - the medical honor society. He completed his Dermatology residency at Emory University in Atlanta and then pursued a fellowship in Mohs surgery and facial reconstruction in Birmingham, Alabama with world-renowned Gary Monheit, MD – a Tucson native and Past President of the American College of Mohs Surgery, American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, and American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.

From 1999 to 2015, Dr. Dhir was a partner with Dermatology Associates of Kentucky in Lexington. He was the busiest Mohs surgeon in Kentucky, and performed over 29,000 Mohs surgeries with a cure rate of over 99.5% and an infection rate of 0.2%. He served as the Medical Director of the only Medicare- and AAAHC-accredited ambulatory surgery center (ASC) ever built in Kentucky dedicated to dermatologic surgery. In 2003, Dr. Dhir was first elected to Best Doctors in America by his colleagues - an honor awarded to the Top 4% of U.S. Physicians.  Since 2004, he has also been recognized as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor - a recognition given to only 7% of all U.S. board-certified physicians.  Dr. Dhir has authored several publications and served as faculty at numerous national scientific meetings. He has been interviewed as a dermatologic expert on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS and in publications such as Newsweek. Dr. Dhir was first board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology in 1998 and has been a Fellow in the American College of Mohs Surgery since 1999.

After raising their children, Dr. Dhir’s love of the Southwest and recognition of Tucson’s skin cancer epidemic led him and Nathalie to relocate to Tucson in 2017. Dr. Dhir practiced with HealthySkin Dermatology for 3 years before opening Arizona Mohs Surgery in 2020. In Tucson, he and his team have performed nearly 11,000 Mohs surgeries.  His goal is to use his significant Mohs surgical and ASC management experience to deliver compassionate, ASC-level surgical care in a less expensive, more comfortable office setting.

We just wanted to say thank you - not only for your professionalism and expert care - but for your compassion. I've never been blessed with a more competent physician and as you know, we've seen our share. There will be a special place in heaven for you but just know for now that there are people that owe your their life - but you already have our hearts! Bless you Doc! We love you!

Just wanted to say thanks, even though very late, for the excellent procedure you did on my face (left side).  It is practically invisible.

I just wanted to drop you all a note to say thanks for the treatment I received in your office this week. I was very pleasantly surprised to have everything run as smooth as it did. Also, the follow-up call that evening was appreciated. You all are to be commended on your professionalism and concern.

Thank you for all your help. I also wanted to compliment you on your kindness and great attention to detail. You always make time to talk and made me feel at ease through a tense procedure. I have been to many doctors in my life and would rate you as the best I have ever known. Your attentiveness, compassion, and ability are without any possible reproach. I can actually say I looked forward to my doctor visits rather than avoided them. I wish you continued success.  Thank you truly.
