Meet Doctor Dhir

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 – 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 4,400 Mohs surgeries.  His goal is to use his significant Mohs surgical and ASC management experience to deliver compassionate, ASC-level surgical care in the less expensive office setting.

You are truly exceptional.  As for your staff, I am most appreciative of their care also.  They welcomed me, treated me splendidly and kept me in an excellent state of mind.  I had no questions that they couldn't answer and their conduct built confidence in me.  Kudos to your entire organization.

I just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of my mother through two separate procedures. You have a kind and calming manner that is very rare today in the medical field, especially with the elderly, the ones that need it the most. And it is very much appreciated. Thank you again. May God bless you and your family.

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.
