Quality, Experience, and Compassion
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 – 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. He 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 over 8,500 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.

Best medical experience ever had. Thanks, Doc.
Thank you for a successful Mohs surgery. I was very confident in your abilities and it was a pleasure to meet you.
Just wanted to send you a little note of thanks for being so kind and thoughtful when I had my minor surgery on Friday. It was so nice of you to call me after the surgery to see how I was feeling. I don't think I have ever had a doctor do that and it made me feel good. Thanks again.
I wanted to say thank you to you & your staff for the successful removal of the BCC from my forehead. The wound healed nicely & is not noticeable. I appreciated how you shared in advance the details on how you perform Mohs surgery. I enjoyed you sharing your interest in sports cars and racing.
Thank you for the Dermabrasion. My nose looks 100% better. You are the BEST doctor I know, and Theresa you are by far the best nurse I ever seen. Thank you for being so thoughtful and making me feel special. I just can't say enough about you two. Thank you.
I wanted to send you a huge thank you for all the work you did after my surgery. As you can see, the scar is not visible at all! This was a picture from our wedding day and I thought you might enjoy seeing the end result of all of it! Thanks again for taking such excellent care of me and my face!
Thank you so much for taking such personal care of me. I appreciate all the consideration I was given, the organization, and the promptness of my treatment and your checking on me.
Thank you for your kind and professional care!
Dr. Dhir and Dani, can't truly express my appreciation of your skill and wonderful care during my recent Mohs experience. I so appreciate how I was treated by you both.
