Our primary mission is to take care of your medical problem as quickly and safely as possible and to get you back doing what you enjoy in life.


Our mantra at Skin and Wound Specialists is to provide Personalized, Experienced and Compassionate medical care to each and every patient.  If you feel you are not getting that I would like you to call me personally and I will fix it.  I am available at the office, via email or via my mobile phone.

We are experts (please see our bios as well) in the treatment of skin cancers, skin cancer screenings, complex wounds and scar management.  Each patient will have an individualized treatment plan and each patient will be involved in the decision-making progress.  More often than not, there are multiple ways to attack a particular cancer or lesion.  We feel it is essential to tailor the treatment based on the particular diagnosis, patient's age, medical conditions, activity level and patients wishes.  We refuse to practice 'assembly line' medicine and take this vow very seriously.     

Our Story

Everyone involved with Skin and Wound Specialists shares a vision of being part of a medical practice that functions at the highest level of state of the art care while retaining impeccable customer service.  Dr. Patti enjoys the challenges of excising and reconstructing skin cancers in the safest and most cosmetically-pleasing fashion; the same applies to the gratification of healing a complex wound. Dr. Patti is the Wound Care and Director or Surgery at Complex Care at Ridgelake and V.P. of the medical staff. This is a facility that admits patients from many parts of the country who have complex surgical and traumatic wounds. He also provides wound care consulting services at Healthsouth Hosptital, Heartland South and Manor Care skilled nursing facilities.  Dr. Patti and Nurse Practitioner, Szylvia Lorincz, have an average of more than 200 wounds under their care at any given time.

Dr. Patti and Robin Neal, his clinical assistant, have known each other for 20 years and in addition to working together in the present surgical practice also started a successful spa/laser center 12 years ago.  Not only is Robin a personable and safe and efficient clinical assistant, she is one of the most experienced aestheticians in Florida having performed vast numbers of facial peels, dermaplanings and laser treatments of 'age spots', skin laxity and hair removal.
