Meet Doctor Dhir

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.

My contact with your office with questions about the procedure was greeted with full explanations and a courteous spirit.  Warmth without professionalism leaves one uncertain; professionalism without warmth leaves one uncomfortable. Gladly, you and your staff combined both warmth and professionalism.

I don't know anyone who says, "I'm so happy I'm going to the doctor today". However, your staff did an excellent job of making me very comfortable. I know I'm not the only patient and your call was appreciated. It brought back memories of my childhood and our family doctor. You are a good doctor and I would recommend your facility to anyone. I spent a lot of time with your staff and they support you with kindness and compassion.  You made it an experience I can remember with fondness.

How can I possibly explain how much you have meant to us. When you took the Hippocratic Oath, it must have had an addendum that covered care and compassion. You are truly special and I feel so blessed to know you.
