Abstract

Patients undergoing Mohs micrographic surgery frequently experience anxiety as a result of multiple potential factors. There is currently no data regarding how this anxiety compares to other common procedures performed in dermatology offices, such as shave biopsy and excision, relative to a general dermatology visit. Herein, we conducted a survey of 471 dermatology patients at an academic medical center, using a validated tool (Visual Analogue Scale from 1 “no anxiety at all” to 10 “extremely anxious”).
