We are pleased to recognize Dr. Ashfaq Marghoob, a dedicated caring and compassionate professional who has touched the lives of many. His insight, skill and knowledge have been instrumental in the diagnosis and treatment of this deadly skin cancer Melanoma. Patients and their families alike experience his expertise, his gentleness and empathy. It is through him they come to a greater awareness of this disease.
Through his appropriate referrals, close follow up, encouragement and constant availability, the patient is empowered with hope and strength to meet the challenge of the illness and the potential effect Melanoma may have on their lives.
To quote a current patient “Billy Sank”, “there are doctors who treat the symptoms of a disease and those who treat the whole person”. “He is to me a teammate in my battle against Cancer”.
The walls of his office do not restrict his commitment to service. Pledged to block the tide of this growing threat Melanoma, Dr. Marghoob is always available to consult with colleagues as well as speak to community groups. His writing, research, published articles and video presentations relating to his specialty Dermatology have enlightened health professionals, parents, students and teachers. He is the Associate Editor of the publication entitled “The Melanoma Letter” and recipient of Honors and Awards too numerous to mention. He is recognized by the Media, Cablevision of Long Island along with ABC-TV as an Informative Professional. His expertise educates their audiences with a view to prevention and early detection of Skin Cancer.
In spite of his many endeavors, Dr. Ashfaq Marghoob is always available to support the efforts of the Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign, enabling it to foster its mission of Melanoma Awareness, Prevention and Early Detection. For all this the Long Island community is in his debt as is the CCMAC Foundation.
Some are in the Pursuit of Excellence – others bring Excellence to the Pursuit!
