Dr. Melody Stone, M.D., FAAD..  obtained her medical degree from the University of Missouri Internal Medicine and completed her internship at Brown University. She completed her dermatological residency at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Stone completed her Preceptorship in Mohs Surgery in Kansas City. She is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, American Society of Mohs Surgery and the Kansas and Missouri Dermatological Societies. She has also performed dermatology research at Yale University, publishing many journal articles and chapters for dermatology textbooks. Her greatest satisfaction is derived from knowing that along with her staff, she has helped her patients by providing the highest standard of care with a warm smile and a compassionate touch. Dr. Gary Dyer started his dermatology practice in St. Joseph, Missouri in 1974. He built his practice on a foundation of compassion, in-depth knowledge and excellent patient care. In 2007, Dr. Melody Stone joined Dr. Dyer and Advanced Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center and Ameliore Medispa and Laser 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.
