DCL welcomes Dr. Farhaad Riyaz, Mohs Surgeon

Despite dermatology practices growing in number and size with the demands of a growing population in the northern VA area, Mohs surgery services have not grown proportionally.  Dermatology Center of Loudoun (DCL) hopes to address this issue by offering the Mohs expertise of Dr. Farhaad Riyaz, MD, FAAD, to our patients.   After completing an exceptional training career in the midwest — obtaining multiple degrees, leadership and research roles — Dr. Riyaz practiced in Washington, DC and has earned the respect of his patients and peers as a Washingtonian Top Doctor.  As he expands his services to the Loudoun County area, he is dedicated to cultivating great collegial relationships with this area’s top dermatologists as patients are transitioned back to their referring dermatologist following his surgical consultations and procedures.  Practicing in a fully equipped Mohs lab and surgical suite at DCL, Dr. Riyaz is available for immediate consultation, Mohs surgery and follow-up, and other cosmetic and surgical skin procedures.

Dr. Farhaad Riyaz is a board-certified dermatologist, fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon and fellowship-trained cosmetic dermatologic surgeon.  He is appointed to committees for the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, the American College for Mohs Surgery and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.

Away from work, Dr. Riyaz enjoys cycling, volunteering, exploring various cuisines and spending time with his family.
