          Hello Irishone21.  

          This is my first post here.  Been a close follower for a year now.  My mom has stage 3B melanoma and is being seen at Mass. General.  Her team consists of Dr. Elana Hawrluk (derm.), Dr. Haynes (surgeon) and Dr. Donald Lawrence (MD – melanoma specialist)  They are all fantastic.     I wish you the best.  You are in great hands at MGH.  


            There are few more renowned Melanoma specialist dermatologists in the world. Realize you'll likely be seeing one of his residents or fellows as well, but they will certainly be very thorough, themselves. But to answer your question, I'm almost wondering if you're joking – he's THAT good.
