Trust your skin only to a board certified dermatologist,
Melody L. Stone, M.D.

Welcome to Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center

Dr. Gary Dyer started his dermatology practice in St. Joseph, Missouri in 1974. He built his practice on a foundation of compassion, indepth knowledge and excellant patient care. In 2007, Dr. Melody Stone joined Dr. Dyer and Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center and Ame'liore' Laser & Medispa was born. After his sudden passing in 2008, Dr. Stone and her mid-level care providers are still dedicated to maintain the level of patient care that Dr. Dyer began so long ago.

At Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, our priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting. We offer a full array of services including general dermatology, skin cancer screenings, MOHS Surgery and cosmetic dermatology to help you maintain healthy skin.

Mission Statement

Quality Care

When you have skin problems, you need to turn to a provider who listens and responds ... an experienced professional who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs ... a friendly person who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health.
