Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute is owned and operated by Robin Fleck M.D., a board–certified internist and dermatologist. Dr. Fleck graduated summa cum laude in biochemistry from Pennsylvania State University in 1974, she attended medical school at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania from 1975-1979, completed her residency training in internal medicine at the University of Pittsburgh from 1979-1982, and her residency in dermatology at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Dallas from 1983-1986. She has worked as a dermatologist in Dallas, Texas and the Pacific Northwest before settling in Prescott, Arizona in 2003. At that time, she created Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute, a practice devoted to providing the highest caliber of dermatology care, including diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and melanoma, as well as full cosmetic services including Botox, fillers, laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, varicose vein treatments and laser skin rejuvenation. Dr. Fleck has the most experience in performing laser treatments in Northern Arizona.
Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics was founded in January of 2005 to expand upon her laser expertise by providing laser hair and tattoo removal and Active FX CO2 laser resurfacing for acne scars and photodamaged skin including wrinkles, skin tightening and eyelid lifts. In addition, Body Oasis offers a full line of spa treatments including massage and nail care, with a vision toward proper nutrition and care of the skin.
In early 2007, Dr. Fleck, after extensive training, began to treat varicose veins using endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy procedures. These procedures have reduced morbidity and downtime from venous insufficiency and has allowed many patients to experience relief of daily pain and get back to enjoying life. After performing over 5000 vein procedures, Dr. Fleck is the most experienced practitioner of vein treatments in Northern Arizona. Implementation of this procedure has led to demand for Dr. Fleck to develop a full-service vein clinic, Vein Specialties, which opened in July of 2008. Services also include a highly-effective European technique for treatment of spider veins. Facial veins and hand veins are also treated at Vein Specialties.
Southwest Skin & Cancer Institute, Vein Specialties, and Body Oasis Laser Aesthetics strive to employ the ultimate in scientific knowledge focusing on the treatment of skin problems and the aging process. Dr. Fleck has participated in double-blind scientific studies of drug evaluations, has written articles for trade and scientific journals and is a frequent lecturer at service organizations, local colleges and health care organizations.
As a scientist with board certification in two specialties, Dr. Fleck is well equipped to sort out the industry hype from the important data that can change the way you look and feel.
