Following Columbia University, Dr. Thosani attended the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark, New Jersey. While there, she was honored to be one of a handful of students elected by her peers and professors to serve in the Gold Humanism Honor Society– which recognizes those who practice patient-centered care by modeling the qualities of integrity, excellence, compassion, altruism, respect, and empathy. Dr. Thosani is recognized by Phoenix Magazine as a Top Doc in 2017.
Dr. Thosani completed her internship at New York University’s Downtown Hospital in Manhattan. She then completed three years of residency and served as a Chief Resident in Dermatology at Stony Brook University Hospital. While at Stony Brook, she spent a significant amount of time at the Veterans Affairs hospital and at Memorial Sloan-Kettering (MSK) Skin Cancer Center. While at MSK she solidified her knowledge in dermoscopy (a specialized technique for skin cancer detection using magnification and light), skin cancer detection, diagnosis, and treatment modalities.
In pursuit of advanced surgical training, Dr. Thosani then completed a rigorous fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery in Cincinnati under the mentorship of Dr. Brett Coldiron – past president of the Mohs College, and past president of the American Academy of Dermatology. She performed over 1700 surgeries and reconstructions in that year, regularly assisting the plastic, head & neck, and oculoplastic surgeons in the operating room.
Dr. Thosani’s research interests involve cutaneous oncology and the use of dermoscopy as a non-invasive tool for early detection of skin cancer. She is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a fellow of the Mohs College. She performs over 1200 surgeries annually, and has done almost 6000 Mohs micrographic surgeries prior to arriving in Arizona. Her personal interests include spending time with her husband and three children, cooking, exercising, drawing/sketching, and traveling.
“If having skin cancer surgery could ever be described as “fun”, my last visit with Dr. Thosani and Victoria was “fun!” Their personable approach and professionalism crossed in a timely manner and kept me very much at ease with the surgical procedure. I have confidence in Dr. Thosani and trust her capability to know what treatment is best for me … If laughter truly is the best medicine, (we) all possibly overdosed on this visit.”
