Meet Our Team

Reno has a fabulous resource and excellent team of doctors at the Skin Cancer & Dermatology Institute. I am so very lucky to have gotten the treatment I needed there!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Kiene for seven years. He has performed numerous Mohs surgeries on my face, and his work is excellent! He rebuilt my nose and ear following skin cancer. The staff always is friendly. Yes, the waiting room is full, but I’ve never had to wait long. I highly recommend this office.

I had to have skin cancer removed from behind my ear.  Dr. Hovenic and her assistants were wonderfully professional yet funny. They turned a seven-hour procedure that was potentially ugly into a positive experience.

I had Dr. Franz Stadler and his great assistant remove my skin cancer. If you have to go through any procedure, these are your people. They are so fun and have the greatest humor. I never stress when I go there.

Dr. Bret Blackhart was instrumental in helping me recover from a puzzling and horrendous full-body rash last summer. I was recovering from a staph infection, and my body’s immune system went into overdrive. The result was a completely disfiguring rash that covered the back of my head down to the tops of my feet. Dr. Blackheart stepped in to see me ASAP the day the rash began. He saw me through to my complete recovery. Once that was over, I was finally cured. It was a miracle.
