Cornerstone Dermatology Featured in Lee's Summit Lifestyle Magazine


When Dustin Steller made an appointment for a full-body skin check, the 38-year-old father of two wasn’t anticipating the diagnosis of skin cancer. But when David Fieleke, MD, board-certified dermatologist at Cornerstone Dermatology & Surgery Group spotted the nickel-sized pink spot above Steller’s left eyebrow, the patient was glad he’d made an appointment.

“The thing that scared me was that spot didn’t really mean anything to me, but if I had let it go and found out three or four years from now, it could have been a much bigger problem,” Steller says. “It motivated me to tell my friends and family, people I care about. Stop putting off that appointment.”

That’s just an excerpt from the article ‘Dermatologist Takes Patients from Cancer to Cure,’ featured here in the January 2019 issue of Lee’s Summit Lifestyle Magazine. In the article, Dr. Fieleke shares why it's so important to schedule your annual full-body skin check. In the article starting on p.42 of the magazine (for those of you with a paper copy!) you'll read about he uses advanced surgical techniques to spare the most surrounding skin and offer patients the highest cure rate and best cosmetic result.
