Doctor Ashfaq Marghoob is a board-certified dermatologist specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of cancers of the skin. He is Director of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Regional Skin Cancer Clinic in Hauppauge, Long Island.
Dr Marghoob continuously explores the importance and significance of the clinical and dermoscopic morphology of lesions. He has published numerous papers on topics related to skin cancer with an emphasis on melanoma, atypical/dysplastic naevi, and congenital melanocytic naevi.
Dr Marghoob’s research interests are focused on the use of imaging instruments such as photography, dermoscopy, and confocal laser microscopy to recognise skin cancer early in its development. He hopes that educating physicians and the public about the importance of early skin cancer detection will help save lives.
