Dermatologist Orange County - Top Rated Mission Viejo & Laguna Niguel

Welcome to Golden Coast Dermatology Skin Cancer and Vein Center

Expert, caring dermatologist for you.

Let me introduce myself…

My Name Is Dr. William James Tidwell

I’m a dermatologist and specialist in skin cancer and varicose vein disease.

As a patient in our practice, your health and satisfaction are very important to us. As a dermatologist, my aim is to create a supportive and comfortable environment where you can receive the highest quality care with an efficient approach to get you back to your life.

I’m a fellowship trained Mohs Micrographic Surgeon. What does that mean? It means I did an additional training program after my dermatology residency learning from the best in the world how to cure cancer and leave only minimal evidence it was ever there. Using a microscope, we completely remove all the cancer in one treatment so you leave knowing you are cancer free that day. No other method does that. It also saves more healthy tissue than any other option for treating skin cancer.

I’m also Board Certified in Venous and Lymphatic medicine. Do you struggle with painful legs, swollen veins, cramps, or restless legs at night? This is a sign that the valves in your legs have been damaged and need to be repaired. You don’t have to suffer with this anymore and insurance covers vein treatment when they meet medical criteria. We can help resolve this to get your sleep and shorts back. If there is a cosmetic treatment that you might be interested in or wanting to know more about, we can advise you. Aging gracefully and feeling confident are wonderful things. 1 don’t believe in over hyped marketing or unnatural results. Just the right treatments, for the right person, in the right amount to make them happy.

Thanks for considering me as your dermatologist for your skin cancer and vein care.
