ABOUT THE PROVIDER
“I love doing what I do, whether that is guiding patients through surgery to remove cancer or cosmetic treatment to restore self-esteem. Yet, what I love the most about being a physician here in Westminster is a sense of community. I practice where I live. My patients see me at a grocery store, at a farmer’s market, in a library. They recognize me, and I immediately recognize them back,” says Dr. Anastasia Benoit.
Dr. Benoit, one of two fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons here at Dermatology Specialists, states that her love for surgical work stems from the gratification of achieving a tangible result. “Every individual is unique in his or her prior experiences and expectations for surgery, so I strive to tailor each procedure to meet the needs of the person in front of me at that very moment. The scientific precision of tumor removal combined with the artistry of a patient-tailored reconstruction is very rewarding,” reflects Dr. Benoit.
Dr. Benoit was inducted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical society at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, where she received her medical degree. Following internship at Denver’s Exempla St. Joseph Hospital, she completed dermatology residency training at the University of Colorado. Subsequently, Dr. Benoit completed a fellowship specializing in skin cancer treatment and plastic surgery reconstruction at the Medical University of South Carolina.
Dr. Benoit is a Fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) and American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). She is currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Colorado Dermatologic Society (CDS), and is an active member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS). Dr. Benoit has multiple publications in leading peer-reviewed dermatology journals and has presented her research at the American College of Mohs Surgery annual meeting. In addition to her time with Dermatology Specialists patients, she continues to mentor residents at the University of Colorado.
