Alpharetta is a part of the Atlanta Metropolitan area and is located in northern Fulton County, GA.
The area that is present-day Alpharetta was originally peopled by Cherokee Indians. The Cherokees in Georgia were forcibly relocated to Indian Territory in Oklahoma in the 1830s, and this made room for white settlers to move in.
One of the first landmarks in the area was the New Prospect Campground, a Methodist camp ground near a natural spring, near present-day downtown Alpharetta. It served as a trading post in later years.
The name Alpharetta has been conjectured to honor the fictional Indian girl Alfarata, from the song “The Blue Juniata.” However, it is more likely that it comes from two Greek words: “alpha” meaning “first” and “retta” meaning “town.”

FAQs About Mohs Surgery
Mohs surgery is considered the most effective technique for treating many basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) and squamous cell carcinomas (SCCs), the two most common types of skin cancer.
It is a surgical technique that uses progressive removal and examination of thin layers of cancer-containing skin to remove all the cancerous tissue without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
The procedure can also be called "Mohs Micrographic Surgery" where the procedure is done in stages, including lab work, while the patient waits. This allows the removal of all cancerous cells for the highest cure rate while sparing healthy tissue and leaving the smallest possible scar.
Local anesthetics can be used during the Mohs Surgery process. This means it is done on an outpatient basis, and patients can feel comfortable before, during, and after the procedure.
“Slow” Mohs, like Mohs surgery, employs progressive removal of thin layers of tissue. In contrast to Mohs surgery, the samples are sent to a pathologist for overnight review as special staining of these cells is required. “Slow” Mohs is used primarily to treat malignant melanoma.
Mohs Surgery varies in length depending on the extent of the skin cancer. Expect to be at the clinic for several hours.
We understand that time is an investment the day of your surgery, so we do all pathology work in our on-site lab by our own team. You will leave knowing the margins are clear and all of the skin cancer has been removed.
