Apex Skin will offer free skin cancer screenings on Wednesday, May 23rd from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM in all five Northeast Ohio locations: Concord, Mayfield Heights, Parma, Solon and Hudson.
Dr. Jorge Garcia, founder of Apex Skin says,“Since we opened in 2011, Apex has offered free skin cancer screenings during Melanoma Awareness month. Our providers volunteer their time to grow awareness about the importance of skin cancer screenings and as it happens each year, together we may spot a few melanomas and save people’s lives.”
One out of five people will have skin cancer during their lives, and skin cancer screenings are crucial to diagnose and treat quickly and effectively. In addition to full skin cancer screenings, Apex also offers a SPOTcheck program where patients have individual areas of concern checked rather than a full skin check.
Dr. Garcia explains, “I often tell my patients that skin cancer can look like a pimple that doesn’t go away, or a non-healing, flaky spot that looks like dry skin. For these lesions, we offer our SPOTcheck clinic, where we guarantee same day appointments to look at that skin spot and evaluate it. It’s a quick appointment that can save a life.”

With five locations in Northeast Ohio, same-day appointment scheduling, short wait times, and a staff that prioritizes patient experience, we are the best option for any skin care needs.
