Dermatology is more than skin deep; just ask Reagan Anderson, DO, dermatologist at Colorado Dermatology Institute.

At his state-of-the-art office, located at 8580 Scarborough Drive, Suite 225, Dr. Anderson treats everything from acne to rosacea, eczema, scarring, and signs of aging. But when he removes a patient’s skin cancer and leaves minimal scarring on a cosmetically sensitive area, he truly feels the weight of his work. “I love doing it,” he said. “When a patient comes back and thanks me for helping them feel and look normal and healthy again, it’s all worth it.”

Though not a Colorado Springs native, Dr. Anderson did spend the latter part of his teen years in the Pikes Peak region and graduated with the Class of 1992 at Rampart High School. After medical school, a United States Navy commissioning, and two tours in Iraq with the United States Marine Corps as the First Reconnaissance Battalion Surgeon, he decided to focus on dermatology and opened Colorado Dermatology Institute in 2010. “When I was deployed, I could always tell how stressed my guys were by how their skin was reacting – it fascinated me,” he said. “I wanted to study it, learn more and help people dealing with skin issues.”

Dr. Anderson specializes in Mohs Micrographic Surgery for the treatment of skin cancer. Mohs is the most proven and effective method for removing both surface skin cancer and any remnants that exist below the surface of the epidermis. “It’s a highly precise procedure, so it also allows for the best cosmetic results because you cut out less skin surrounding the tumor,” he said. “It’s generally a safer, more convenient and less expensive procedure.” Dr. Anderson is one of 40 Mohs surgeons in the U.S. to have earned the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology Certificate of Added Qualification in Mohs Micrographic Surgery.

In addition to his surgical expertise, Dr. Anderson ensures a high quality of customer service for his patients from the moment they walk through the door. Every room in the Colorado Dermatology Institute has been well planned and staff members greet patients with genuine smiles and helpful guidance. “We care about helping you become comfortable in your skin,” Dr. Anderson said. “We provide comprehensive skin treatment in one place, to help anyone with any type of skin issue. Your skin should never hinder you from doing something you want.”
