Dr. Renato Goreshi, who is originally from Lancaster, PA, is happy to make the Greater Philadelphia area his new home. He is no stranger to Philadelphia, however, having received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. In addition to completing a residency in dermatology at Howard University Hospital where he was named the chief resident, he completed an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education and Academic College of Mohs Surgery accredited procedural dermatology fellowship at Roger Williams Medical Center, which encompasses Mohs micrographic surgery, surgical dermatology and cosmetic dermatology.
“”Building a strong doctor-patient relationship is essential for good medical care. Though the application of medical knowledge and training is crucial, patient education and the prioritization of patient interests are essential components to providing excellent medical care.” – Dr. Renato Goreshi.”
