Leading Ladies 2024


Dr. Alyssa Findley’s story is one of passion, expertise, and a deep-rooted commitment to patient well-being. Her practice, FINDLEY DERMATOLOGY, is focused on patient-centered dermatological care, providing Mohs micrographic and reconstructive surgery for skin cancer, as well as surgical and cosmetic dermatology. Dr. Findley’s legacy is not only in the lives she transforms through her surgical expertise but in the paradigm shift she represents – where empathy and precision converge.

Mohs, renowned for its effectiveness in treating various skin cancers, combines surgical expertise, pathology, and reconstructive artistry into a single visit. Offering the highest chance for a cure by visualizing all tissue margins and providing real-time microscopic examination of the tissue, it minimizes the removal of normal skin, resulting in more favorable functional and cosmetic results. Patients leave surgery cancer-free and with the lowest likelihood for recurrence. Dr. Findley’s expertise extends beyond routine cases, as she is one of the few surgeons in the region with fellowship training to perform complex reconstruction and Mohs for melanoma.

“As a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon, I am dedicated to educating my patients about the importance of selecting a surgeon with the proper training to perform this procedure. By completing a rigorous surgical fellowship in Mohs surgery, cutaneous oncology, and complex reconstruction, a surgeon gains the instruction and expertise to ensure an optimal outcome and recovery for their patients,” says Dr. Findley, who holds an MD from Tufts University School of Medicine. She has performed thousands of Mohs surgery procedures over the past decade, giving her ample experience to care for her patients in the best possible manner.

Dr. Findley has completed an internal medicine internship, dermatology residency, and fellowship-level training, and is a fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) and member of other state and national medical associations. She is dual board certified by the American Board of Dermatology in both general dermatology and Micrographic Dermatologic Surgery.

At the heart of Dr. Findley’s practice is a commitment to patient-centered care. Embracing a philosophy that extends beyond clinical procedures, she operates under local anesthesia, ensuring the comfort of her patients while cultivating an environment conducive to forming personal connections. “My staff and I are afforded the opportunity to really get to know our patients. I hit the jackpot when I chose my profession. The chance to build long-term relationships with my patients and engage in work I’m passionate about brings me endless fulfillment.”

Whether the patient needs skin cancer surgery, benign lesion removal, or a cosmetic procedure, the goal is always to safely achieve the most optimal outcome. When it comes to minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, Dr. Findley helps patients achieve a well-rested, refreshed look. “When patients feel confident in their skin, it really shines through. Whether they’re looking for a subtle enhancement or a complete rejuvenation, we offer a wide range of procedures, including Botox, Dysport, dermal fillers, PRP, microneedling, chemical peels, and more,” says Dr. Findley.

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

Dr. Findley’s extensive training, patient-centric approach, and unwavering dedication make her the trusted choice for comprehensive and effective care.
