Your patients with a biopsy-confirmed diagnosis of skin cancer do not require a referral to U-M Dermatology. Appointments can be scheduled by you or your patient at any time during, before or after treatment. However, appointments for patients with possible skin cancers (NOT biopsy-confirmed) do require a consult request be provided to our General Dermatology Service.
