Qualifications and Experience
Greg S. Morganroth, M.D. is the Founder and CEO of California Skin Institute (CSI) and CSI Medical Group. He is a full-time clinician specializing in the most advanced skin surgery techniques available and is responsible for clinical services, business development, and strategic planning. Since 2007, he has integrated over 40 dermatology, plastic surgery, and aesthetic practices to form the largest skin based practice in California with a nationally recognized platinum level platform for dermatology and plastic surgery. Dr. Morganroth is one of a handful of board certified, fellowship-trained dermatologic surgeons in the San Francisco Bay Area specializing in Mohs Surgery, laser surgery, reconstructive, and cosmetic surgery. He is a nationally recognized expert in skin surgery and has received thousands of referrals from dermatologists and other physicians around the Bay Area and beyond for their patients in need of specialized skin cancer surgery, reconstructive surgery, scar revision, laser surgery, and facial, eye, and body cosmetic surgery. Greg S. Morganroth's broad repertoire of surgical procedures spans the gap between dermatology and plastic surgery-a practice that is unique to the region and allows him to offer unique solutions to both common and uncommon surgical problems. Since 1995, has performed over 26,000 Mohs surgery procedures for skin cancer and an equal number of advanced reconstructive surgeries and scar revisions making him one of the most experienced skin cancer surgeons in California. He is also recognized nationally for his unique, minimally invasive cosmetic rejuvenation procedures with local anesthesia. Since 1995, he has performed thousands of facelifts, eyelifts, body sculpting with liposuction, neck sculpting, chin implants, scar revisions, laser procedures, chemical peels, and hair transplants with local anesthesia. Over the past decade, he has developed a niche practice dedicated to helping patients dissatisfied with the outcomes of plastic and reconstructive surgery performed by other surgeons. In 2010, Dr. Morganroth was invited to compete in the Iron Surgeon Competition at the Annual Meeting of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery in Chicago, IL. Based on the votes of over 600 of his surgical peers, Dr. Morganroth won the Iron Surgeon Award based on his superior reconstructive technique and patient outcome. He is a native of Michigan and attended college at The University of Michigan where he graduated with distinction. He received his M.D. cum laude from the University of Michigan School of Medicine where he was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha National Honor Society and was awarded the Carl Vernon Weller Award for top student in pathology. Dr. Morganroth then left the Midwest for the Ivy League where he completed his internship at the University of Pennsylvania and a dermatology residency at Yale University. At Yale, he realized his true potential as a skin surgeon and decided to pursue a career in dermatologic surgery. Following his graduation from Yale in 1994, he returned to the Midwest to complete a competitive Mohs, Laser, and dermatologic surgery fellowship at the Skin and Mohs Surgery Center, Baptist Medical Center and Hunkeler Eye Clinic in Kansas City, Missouri. During this one year fellowship approved by the American College of Mohs Surgery, he was fortunate to train with a Mohs and laser surgeon, facial plastic surgeon, and an ophthalmic plastic surgeon providing a unique multidisciplinary foundation in skin surgery. Following his fellowship, he moved to Silicon Valley to open his private practice of dermatologic and cosmetic surgery. Dr. Morganroth is perhaps best known nationally for his own unique, state-of-the-art, local anesthesia skin surgery techniques combining facets of dermatologic surgery, facial plastic surgery, and ophthalmic plastic surgery. His techniques that are quite different from traditional plastic surgery in both philosophy and implementation provide dramatic and natural outcomes with the safety and minimal downtime afforded by the use of local anesthesia.* As a recipient of multidisciplinary training during his fellowship, Dr. Morganroth enjoys collaborating with colleagues from dermatology and other surgical specialties. He is regularly visited by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, and oculoplastic surgeons from the US and abroad to observe him operate at the California Skin Institute. He is frequently invited to present his reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery techniques at national dermatology and facial plastic surgery meetings. New York University invited him to give the keynote lecture at their Advanced Dermatology Course titled "One Perspective on the Future of Advanced Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery". He has also taught his cosmetic and reconstruction techniques at Stanford University, New York University (a second time), the University of Miami, University of Utah, Henry Ford Medical Center in Detroit, Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York, and many professional meetings including the annual meetings of the American Academy of Dermatology, American College of Mohs Surgery, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, Foundation for Facial Plastic Surgery, and California Society of Facial Plastic Surgery. He has held various academic appointments previously that include Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery at Stanford University, clinical faculty of the Mittelman Facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship training program based in Los Altos, CA, and as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at the University of California at San Francisco. He was founder and co-director of the Next Step Dermatologic Surgery Course at Stanford University in 2004-2005 and revived the Next Step Dermatologic Surgery Course in 2012 where surgeons from around the US and Canada traveled to watch him perform his unique cosmetic techniques at CSI-San Jose/Los Gatos. He has also published numerous book chapters on his Vertical Vector Facelift technique, chin augmentation, facial reconstruction, and his recommendations to prevent and correct facelift complications in multiple prominent dermatologic surgery reference textbooks. He has also published clinical and research articles in prestigious medical journals including: The New England Journal of Medicine; Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery; Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, Clinics in Plastic Surgery; Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology; Archives of Dermatology; and Journal of Investigative Dermatology. Between 2004 and 2013, Dr. Morganroth was a Mohs fellowship director and trained one or two fellows each year in his skin cancer, reconstruction, laser, and cosmetic techniques. Initially under the auspices of the American College of Mohs Surgery from 2004-2011, his one year fellowship later became independent to encourage the emphasis on advanced cosmetic surgery, laser, and scar revision surgeries. His former surgical fellows have been recruited to leading academic centers on the East and West Coasts as well as private practices thoughout the country. Dr. Morganroth is a Fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery, American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, California Dermatology Society, and the American Academy of Dermatology. *Individual results may vary and are not guaranteed.
Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional and very courteous. I appreciated his explanation and his expertise.
Dr. Morganroth has treated me multiple times for skin related issues and does an excellent job each and every time.
I was a patient of Dr. Morganroth fourteen years ago. The results of Mohs treatment on my nose back then were excellent!! This time I am facing Mohs surgery on my forehead. After visiting a different doctor close to my home, I was given far more complex instructions relative to surgery than before. The gravity of the instructions from this local doctor plus the warnings of many different things that could go wrong was quite disturbing. Dr. Morganroth answered all of my questions directly and I felt far more confidence in his abilities as a doctor especially given his success with me in the past!
The wait time was too long but I appreciate the thorough check-up and efficient treatment.
Always a good appointment. Very thorough. Congenial. Professional.
I have gone to Dr. Morganroth for many years now, after having been to about half dozen or more other dermatologists. I am extremely confident in his knowledge and skills and believe he provides the best medical care possible in his areas of expertise. I will continue to use him with the highest confidence.
Dr. Morganroth and his team are fantastic. Knowledgable, friendly, warm and quick. And most importantly - he is a great doctor :-)
Confident and through
Always pleased. Have been a patient for years.
Dr. Morganroth literally saved my nose from my previous dermatologist's ill fated biopsy cut. Since then I go to no one else.
Dr. Morganroth is incredible! He is a true professional who is a perfectionist and when it comes to my face I want perfection! The front office is friendly and extremely helpful. His nurse staff is also great.
No waiting time. Doctor was friendly.
It was quick and just fine! It was okay to cancel my appt. on zoc doc without letting me know, because I got in 15 minutes earlier anyway! I had to call to get in! Which is ok also! Thinking about getting IPL. Does the doctor ever do IPL?
I saw Michelle Quinn. She's great!
Very professional. Found him very helpful.
Personable, caring, thorough. Offered to do an in office simple procedure, removing pre-cancerous lesions. First visit always is an indicator if a Doctor is willing to take the time to check what a patient needs. I am happy to say he did just that! Thank you Dr. Morganroth and staff.
Dr. Morganroth and everyone who works in his office are AMAZING. Best bedside manner of any doctor I know (and I have some good ones). Above and beyond in every way possible.
Acceptable, but I expected more to be done than the one issue he took care of. I was referred to another dermatologist for the other problems.
Dr. Morganroth has such a great approach to helping you be your natural self!
I was hoping for help doing an overall mole/cancer screening, assess sun damage, and also address some skincare concerns and have never felt more dismissed by a doctor in my life (and I've had plenty.) Dr. Morganroth informed me that he was basically too good to be dealing with my issues, that I should have booked with another dr. and proceeded to make me super uncomfortable to the point of tears. It's unfortunate because the front office staff is lovely, but he's too busy for anything that doesn't require expensive surgery. Be forewarned...
I always can count on a good appointment with Dr. Morganroth.
This is a well run office that inspires confidence in the patient.
Highly competent in his field.
Very helpful, thorough and instills confidence
Excellent - very professional, considerate and informative.
Excellent. On time, quick diagnosis, nice and friendly staff and doctor. Dr. Morganroth is excellent - kind, caring and practical. Highly recommend him.
Dr. Morganthroth is the ABSOLUTE best doctor! His honest assessment of procedures he recommends results in fabulous results that fit my and my lifestyle. His office is friendly and the online appointment tool is extremely convenient.
First visit. Very businesslike, which is fine. Seemed knowledgeable, but in a hurry. I have a follow-up appt. so I will see if anything changes.
Nice, clean office. Really helpful, friendly staff... I sure could tell they enjoyed working there. Dr. Morganroth was professional, friendly, easy to talk to, listened to my concerns, explained the options, was focused. I am delighted to be his patient.
He is very professional yet warm and nice. He admits when one should be referred out as not to make a wrong diagnosis... But the things that he does do are perfect....
Great doctor especially for the Mose procedure.
Great experience, everyone was so helpful!!!
Did not care for him at all. Did not take much time answering my questions ? I thought he was abrupt and quite full of himself!
I went for a specific reason and got it taken care of . Im happy to say that my visit with Dr. Morganroth was piece of cake, and would highly recommend him.
I always have to wait to see him, anywhere from 30-60 minutes. I understand it up to a point because I usually have appointments very late in the day. Still... Dr. Morganroth generally has a good bedside manner, but this last visit for botox was a "blow-by". I may start moving my appointments to morning.
Dr Morganroth was very engaging. He took time answering my general questions and was really kind and helpful. I always feel well taken care of even when the doc is super busy.
Good question. Greg appears to be an extremely skilled doctor. I don't like filling out these question reviews. I prefer direct contact. Dr. Morganroth is very direct. He was late due to waiting for the pathology report.
Consummate professional, absolutely exceptional in all areas of his work from complex MOHs laser procedures to cosmetic applications. Not the go-to guy if you need a psychiatric therapist more than a surgeon/doctor. There are lots of the former out there and only one Dr. Morganroth. If you want superior, world-recognized dermatological work, he's the doc.
Dr. Morganroth is a very pleasant, professional-yet-friendly person who thoroughly and efficiently took care of my specific skin concerns today. My previous dermatologist spent part of my appointment time pushing skin care products on me; I was pleased that Dr. Morganroth only spoke about his other services after I specifically asked. His staff member, Marcie, is also a very professional and warm person. I will stay with Dr. Morganroth for my dermatology care.
Excellent as always
Overall, I was happy visiting Dr. Morganroth's office. He was straightforward, knew what his specialty was, and was surprisingly nice. They did not push any expensive treatment or products but recommended me the right treatment for my skin.
I wouldn't go anywhere else
All in all....very professionally run!
He was really one of the best doctors I've ever had the privilege and opportunity of seeing. I work with doctors for a living and am usually very critical of being a patient myself but he far exceeded my expectations. I live in SF and drove an hour to see him and am glad I did. I will do it again next time I need him and will also refer him to my friends and family. I HIGHLY recommend him as a solid knowledgeable professional.
Honesty is worth a million words. He's very, vert good and has concern about his patients. A 10.
It went very well.I was seen by one of his associates and she was excellent.
The visit was hurried. It could be because of lack of doctors, but doctor's manner was very hurried. He also wasn't giving information until I ask. Maybe cosmetic surgery patients who bring in more cash may have better treatment from them, but overall, I am not satisfied by the visit.
Dr. Morganroth was friendly, and professional without rushing, Answered all of my questions and asked if I had more of them.
efficient and fast, would consult him again any day
He is great. Today he was in more "rare form" than usual. He is a very nice man.
Very personable, honest, sincere and interested in my concerns for visit.
Both Dr Morganroth and Dr Deluca are great. They completely understood my issue and discussed with me my options. It was my first visit and I was very impressed by their professionalism and their patient care.
Handsome doctor. Hot staff. Too bad their office wasn't also a dating service.
Smart lipo.... Cellulaze.....spider veins
Dr. Morganroth is very efficient. He knows his business. I have confidence that Dr. Morganroth will do the right thing when it comes to my skin issues, this is right in his wheel house.
It was GREAT!!! There was no wait even though there were others in the waiting room. I wasn't left in the exam room for any time at all. The assistant came in whom was very nice took some info and then Dr Moranroth came in just as she was leaving. He listened, exmed me thoroughly and acknowledged & took care of other issues wasn't even in there for.
Dr. Morganroth is a brillliant doctor who is highly ethical and a fabulous surgeon.
Fast, efficient checkup
Dr. Morganroth is very knowledgeable. He is quick because of the busy practice, but answers all my questions and the nurses check to make sure I didn't have anything else for him before they let me leave.
Dr. Morganroth is a perfectionist about the work he does for patients. I enjoy working with him and have been so pleased with the outcome!
There was an unusual wait time due to an emergency. My understanding is that this is not typical. Once I saw the doctor things went smoothly and I thought he did a good job and was pleasant to talk to.
Extremely high wait times. I had to wait about an hour. Is my time not as important as theirs?
Dr. Morganroth and everyone in his office were FANTASTIC. ZocDoc had not actually added me to the calendar in the Dr's office. Still, they pulled together, squeezed me in, and I was in and out in less than 30 minutes and everyone was charming, gracious and human.
He and his office were great despite a glitch in the zocdoc scheduling interface
Dr. Morganroth's front office has become one of the best (friendly, efficient) run Dr.'s offices I am aware of. I know that this was personally important to him beginning a number of years ago and he addressed issues extremely successfully, as evidenced by the truly excellent result.
friendly and caring staff. presented alternatives without "selling." highly recommend.
Great guy. Direct and to the point. No wasted time at my appointment. Gold star on first visit
Dr. Morganroth is very knowledgable and helpful, and he does great work! Because of this he is very busy and moves along quickly, so be prepared with all your questions and the answers to what he is likely to ask.
Very professional and polite-friendly!
Dr MOrganroth is the greatest
Very pleasant, very friendly, very helpful. During a skin scan, he found a spot I had forgotten to mention. Since his specialty is surgery, he called in 2 different specialists to address my non-surgery-related skin problems, and also did a biopsy to get more information. Both specialists gave me their full attention and didn't rush me through the appointment. A nice change from my previous experiences at another skin center.
What I really like about Dr. Morganroth, besides his thoroughness and exceptional skills, is that he will do what he can during your visit, e.g., freeze or zap spots, etc., rather than scheduling a second appointment.
Very professional staff and my visit was on time. Dr. Morganroth had excellent bedside manner and is cutting edge in his treatments.
Dr. Morganroth is very skilled, thorough and professional. He answered all of my questions and gave me honest feedback. I appreciated his excellent bedside manner. If you are looking for the best outcome for your condition, make an appointment to see Dr. Morganroth.
The doctor is good but the receptionist is way below standard and professional. I was even wondering whether she knew what she was doing. She was looking for keys, I heard questions like "do you know how to make this xxx". She wasn't responsive, and claimed she could handle multiple things yet kept me waiting for my prescription and schedule. Very bad experiences. I think her name is Brenta.
I was pleased that he was able to accomodate me right away. Very professional and personable.
Dr. Morganroth gets right down to business, but I personally like that. I wanted my issue to be dealt with, but I too have time limitations. He knows what he is doing and is quite personable. I came in for a scar to be improved, and it already looks a lot better- yippee!
I found Dr. Morganroth to be extremely professional and an expert in his field, staff was helpful and friendly.
It was a pleasure. He's professional, personable, detailed and a doctor I trust.
The doctor is very approachable and knowledgeable; the care is very much patient-centered.
Dr Morganroth was very knowledgeable about the skin with an eye towards overall long term heath. In addition, he was able to present ways to improve your appearance using a multitude of options based on your budget and time. Your one stop shop if you want to improve your looks and see a true health professional at the same time.
The doctor is a consummate professional, brisk but thorough, confident, clearly skilled, knowledgeable, a powerful intellect. Delighted with results. Will return.
I was Very Impressed,He is Very Friendly and easy to understand and to talk to an I felt better after talking to Him. I am usually very Nervous but not with Him Today!! His Associates were Very Nice and Easy to talk with also! It was a Good appointment and I got exactly the answers that I wanted to!
I wish all my doctors were as good as Morganroth.
Professional, knowledgeable, and friendly.
Dr. Morganroth is always professional and a master at what he does. I wouldn't go to anyone else!
He is very good at what he does.
Knowledgeable , honest
I used to see Dr. Morganroth several years ago and haven't in a while because I moved out of the area. I'm so happy to be back! The office is run like a well oiled machine (which is very rare). He is a confident expert who is also very clear and personable.
Visit went like clockwork. I got some skin spots looked at and taken care of. I felt he listened to my needs.
Dr. Morganroth came highly recommended, and he still managed to exceed my expectations.
Dr. Morganroth is the BEST in his field. No need to shop around. He is an expert & his work is flawless. He's a very genuine person & cares about his patients. I trust him completely. 100% satisfied. Oh, and Melinda is fabulous! She'll answer ALL of your questions and is very sweet.
Very pleasant and professional! Good eye contact and makes you feel connected. Efficient! From making appointment to leaving the office.
Very friendly staff! Dr. Morganroth was very personable and accommodating to my needs.
He seems smart, trustworthy and competent.
He was just as nice now as he was a few years ago when he treated my husband with MOHs on his face.
Very nice and personable.
honest, professional and made good recommendations
quick, professional, and top of his field.
He was extremely helpful and I didn't feel rushed out like most doctors. Definitely recommended.
I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. He's an outstanding surgeon and excellent diagnostician.
Love Dr. Morganroth, he's the best!
Overall he is a good doctor, addressing the problems that I have. However, personally I will still talk to other professional doctor to have different opinions.
