Free SPOTme Skin Cancer Screenings
DLC of Chapel Hill partners with The Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation and the American Academy of Dermatologyâ€™s SPOTme program to offer free screenings. Free screenings take place every last Monday of the month by appointment. Please call our office to schedule.
Will the screening take the place of my yearly exam with my dermatologist or physician?
This is aÂ rapid screening for skin cancer onlyÂ and should not replace or be a substitute for a yearly examination with your physician or dermatologist.
Can I ask the medical personnel to look at my skin for other dermatologic conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, etc.?
SPOTmeÂ® skin cancer screeningsÂ are for skin cancer only. Please make an appointment for other dermatologic concerns. If you do not have a dermatologist, we are happy to assist you. Our office is happy to register you as a patient, or you can locate a dermatologist in your area by using the AAD’sÂ Find a DermatologistÂ tool or by calling the American Academy of Dermatology toll-free at (888) 462-DERM.
For other dermatologic conditions, please provide your health insurance upon check in. Â
Please note that we have separate patient intake forms for other dermatologic conditions. Please check that our office contracts with your insurance company as we will file your insurance for other and/or follow-up concerns. Â WeÂ are happy to make you a chart and, if the schedules permits, to address your other concerns today.
