Leading Ladies 2023


For top-notch dermatological procedures and cosmetic treatments, Dr. Alyssa Findley’s East Providence practice FINDLEY DERMATOLOGY LLC boasts compassionate care and expertise. A board-certified, fellowship-trained dermatologist and Mohs surgeon, Dr. Findley specializes in skin cancer surgery, complex reconstruction, and cosmetic dermatology, with a particular interest in the surgical management of melanoma.

“We just opened our doors to patients two months ago, so we are constantly evolving and super excited about the fu- ture,” says Dr. Findley, who holds a MD from Tufts University School of Medicine. She has completed internship, residen- cy, and fellowship-level training, and is a fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery and member of other state and

national medical associations. With 10 years of experience and intensive training, Dr. Findley has performed thousands of Mohs surgeries and complex procedures.

As one of very few fellowship-trained surgeons in the area practicing Mohs, Dr. Findley is often referred patients from across Southern New England. “I’m very passionate about educating my patients about the different procedures and treatments we offer,” she says. She’s a strong advocate for the benefits of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and reconstruction occuring in a single setting. Mohs surgery is a highly effective technique used for treating many kinds of skin cancers, allowing for examination of tissue specimens real-time during the surgery to pinpoint the precise location of tumor cells. This allows for her to minimize the removal of healthy surrounding skin,

ensuring optimal reconstruction, and an easier recovery.

Along with skin cancer treatment, Findley Dermatology’s specialties include complex reconstruction and cosmetic dermatology. The goal is always to achieve the best func- tional and cosmetic outcome, and when it comes to minimally invasive cosmetic treat- ments, Dr. Findley helps patients achieve a well-rested and refreshed look.

“All procedures are under local anes- thesia, so my staff and I are afforded the opportunity to really get to know our patients,” Dr. Findley says. “I love these conversations, forming long-term rela- tionships, and providing excellent care.” Whether the patient arrives at Findley Dermatology seeking skin cancer surgery, benign lesion removal, or cosmetic proce- dures, they can feel safe and assured that they’re getting the best possible care.

Even for those who don’t have any pressing skin concerns, Dr. Findley recommends that everyone schedule a full-body skin exam performed by a board- certified dermatologist to potentially detect and diagnose skin cancer and other issues that the patient may otherwise believe are harmless.

Throughout Dr. Findley’s career, balanc- ing work and family life has played a role in everything she does. “I’ve had babies at almost all points in my career – residency, fellowship, and as an attending. Persever- ance, dedication, and laughter have gotten me through it,” she reflects. The mother of five (to four boys and one girl) brings her warmth and sense of humor to both her personal and professional life. “I’ve always felt that being a mom has made me a bet- ter doctor, and vice versa.” An outdoor lov- er, she can also often be found running at Barrington Beach with her sheepadoodle Ollie on the weekends.

Looking forward to seeing her new practice grow in the coming years, Dr. Findley is working on ways to illuminate the high-quality work she and her team are dedicated to carrying out. “Soon, we’ll be able to provide our patients with videos and media to showcase what hap- pens at Findley Dermatology on a day- to-day basis.”
