"I have been a patient of Dr. Hambley for about 9-10 years. I have a persistent actinic keratoses on my lower lip which he has been doing on-going treatments about once each year. He does this to avoid it turning into Squamous, but also to maintain the lip in good condition without surgery. Once, I thought I should have a second opinion because I was concerned about my need to do it yearly. I went to UCSF, one of the best medical centers in the states. I met with their dermatologist as they did a biopsy and they asked who my doctor was in Carmel. When I told them, they laughed as they said he is the best! And, not only that, he teaches them!
He also performed a MOHS treatment above my lip which was highly successful.
He is kind, caring and gentle. I live in Mexico now and am in hopes to have a teleconference with him for guidance.
