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 – 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. He is also 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.

Just want you to know how pleased I was with the exceptional care received. Never in my 84 years have I felt so comfortable in a medical setting!
Not only were the staff very kind and caring, but are a real credit to their profession. I was very impressed with the way they relate to their patients. Thank you for taking the time to explain everything to us. Your staff is very wonderful. You should be very proud of them.
I feel like the luckiest person on earth that I was sent to you. You have the lightest touch while working, but the determination to get things right like a 5 Star General. You are rare.
It has been a little over a week since my last subcision procedure and things are going and looking great! I want you to know how much I greatly appreciate your help, kindness, and concern. You are one of the few doctors who leaves you with the pleasing impression that they honestly care about their patients.
Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that I'm very pleased with the outcome and appreciative of your superb skill as a surgeon.
