About Dr. Bartlow

Biography: Gregory Bartlow M.D. is a Board Certified Dermatologist and Dermatologic Surgeon, specializing in skin cancer surgery. He is a member of the SCARS Center’s team of surgeons, working to educate, diagnose and treat patients in Orange County.


Dr. Bartlow has practiced surgical dermatology for over thirty years, perfecting his abilities in the minimally invasive, highly successful treatment of Mohs Micrographic Surgery. This technique has a success rate in the 90th percentile and allows physicians to preserve skin in the sensitive areas of the head and neck, such as eyes, ears, nose and mouth.


While Dr. Bartlow strongly recommends sun safety and awareness for protecting oneself against the threats of skin cancer, his biggest advocacy is for regular skin checks. Over the years he has treated innumerable skin cancers that existed in areas with little to no sun exposure, and contends that most of his patients are regulars, as skin cancer will recur in patients who have been previously treated.
