Quality, Experience, and Compassion

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

Anir Dhir, M.D., F.A.C.M.S., F.A.A.D.

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. 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.

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!

We both want to thank you and your "cohorts"-not only for the surgery well done-but the sensitivity and thoughtfulness you provided. Thank you.

Just a note to thank you for my surgery. The graft has taken well and it seems to be healing nicely. Since I was diagnosed with myeloma and lymphoma, I have been treated by a number of doctors and surgeons. You have been one of the very best. You were friendly, took time to explain things in easy-to-understand terms. You are a very skilled surgeon. I was treated more as a friend, not just another number. It's never fun to go to doctors, but you make it as enjoyable as possible. Thanks.

Thank you for doing a great job on getting cancer off my eyelid and out the corner of my eye. It has healed well! Every one of you in the office treated me well and took good care of me and I really appreciate that. I'm very pleased that my eye is alright and I hope you can see how is has healed. Thank you so very much!
