It is true that our office has won more awards than any other dermatology office in The Villages or Leesburg. And, although we are honored, winning awards has never been our focus. At Dermatology and Mohs Surgery, we love what we do and are all dedicated to providing the best possible care to our patients. The awards simply help us to know we are on the right track!

Our Most Recent Recognition is from CBS Channel 6!

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Gurgen has been honored: “Best of Central Florida’s People’s Choice Award”, awarded by CBS Channel 6 News out of Orlando. The award covers all of Central Florida, and is given only to professionals who have been voted the best by their patients, customers or clients. We are very honored to have been considered among the best dermatologists in Central Florida. As a result, Dr. Gurgen was interviewed and highlighted on “Best of Central Florida” with Justin Clark & Makaila Nichols. You can see highlights from the interview below.


Other Designations

Dr Gurgen and the Dermatology and Mohs Surgery offices have also been designated several other awards this year. One the the most prestigious, America’s Most Honored Doctor is a professional achievement granted by the American Registry to only the top 1% of medical professionals nationwide. We are very excited to announce that we received this award again in 2021, for the 6th year in a row.

Additionally, Dr. Gurgen is known for his long-standing Patient’s Choice Award, as in 2021 he earned this position for 10 years in a row! This award is decided by patients regarding overall physician satisfaction and admiration. This is one of our favorite awards, since there is nothing better than being one of Florida’s Favorite Physicians due to the excellent ratings of our patients.

Compassion is a very critical part of any dermatology practice. Since, a major focus in our practice is to detect and treat skin cancer, we feel it is imperative to be patient and sympathetic to the patient’s concerns and needs. Our office has been honored with this award since 2012 for “treating patients with the utmost kindness”, making it our 10th year to receive this award.

Last year, Dr. Gurgen and our staff achieved the On-Time Doctor award for the shortest average wait time. This information was compiled from patient input on a 3rd party resource. We value you your time and do our very best to not keep you waiting.

Lake and Sumter’s Style is a magazine located in Leesburg, Florida. Its first publication was released in 2004 as a high-quality, upscale advertisement. Lake and Sumter Style Magazine sponsors an annual contest in a variety of categories, identifying the “Best of the Best” in each profession. The residents of Lake and Sumter Counties vote on who receives this recognition, from clothing boutiques and restaurants to professional cleaners and physicians. Including all the categories, nearly 35,000 people participated in the 2020 voting. For the dermatology division, 2993 residents voted, with 28% of the votes going to Dr. Gurgen. This is a considerable honor taking into account all of the dermatologists who practice in these counties. He is more than pleased and honored to have been chosen by the individuals of Lake and Sumter county.

The staff at Leesburg Dermatology & Mohs Surgery and Lady Lake Dermatology & Mohs Surgery are thrilled to be a part of such an outstanding practice. We are very proud of Dr. Gurgen for achieving these accomplishments. We would like to send a BIG Thank You to everyone who participated in completing online surveys and/or voting for Dr. Gurgen. Professional awards are nice to receive, but those awarded by our patient’s input mean the very most! Our goal is to ensure that every patient feels important and appreciated.

More About Dr. Gurgen and Our Practice:

Dr. Gurgen is a board-certified dermatologist and award-winning Mohs surgeon. He practices at two office locations in Leesburg and The Villages, Florida. The two locations have facilities for both general dermatology and Mohs surgery. Therefore, procedures can be done in both locations and there is no need for our patients travel between offices.

One of the main objectives of our practice is to detect skin cancers as early as possible. In order to do so, our providers ensure very comprehensive skin exams by paying attention to detail, making extensive notes, and careful follow up. We know from experience that detection of skin cancer early on is the key to successful treatment for the most positive outcomes.

For the majority of cases, skin cancer is most prevalent in individuals who are 30 or older. That is why we recommend professional skin examinations at least twice a year. Early detection through frequent skin exams can avoid chemotherapy, radiation, and other difficult procedures. Referrals are never necessary – you can contact our office directly. And, we work with a wide variety of insurance carriers.
