Skin Cancer and Dermatology Institute was established in 1996 by Dr. Dan E. Rowe, M.D. in conjunction with Dr. Kevin L. Kiene, M.D. and Dr. Bret S. Blackhart, M.D., all of whom remain active members on the current staff.


Experiencing explosive growth, SCDI quickly moved its office space while maintaining its steadfast commitment to the highest level of patient care and to ongoing innovation in the industry.


In 2002, with the hire of Dr. Franz J. Stadler who went on to become a partner in 2003, SCDI obtained laser equipment that enabled us to extend our offerings to include hair removal and treatment of spider veins, discoloring and acne as well as injectables and chemical peels.


Now, with an energetic, dedicated team of highly trained doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants as well as the only three physicians in the Northern Nevada area to have completed an intensive 1-year fellowship in Mohs Micrographic surgery, SCDI has the breadth and depth of experience to serve patients in five locations, including two in Reno, one in Carson City, one in Elko, and another in Fallon.
