Skin cancer is a serious thing and it affects all of us. The more we know about skin cancer the more lives we can save. I love being able to remove cancers and leave great results for each of my patients."

Dr. Saini’s extensive training includes George Washington University, Georgetown University Medical School and an internship in General Surgery at Washington Hospital Center. He then served for our Nation’s Air Force as a General Medicine Officer. Soon thereafter, he was promoted to Chief of Aerospace Medicine at the U.S. Air Force Clinic in Los Angeles. It was here that he was directly involved in the healthcare of manned space flight engineers and astronauts.

When Dr. Saini returned to the DC area, he completed his Dermatology residency at Howard University Hospital and then completed his fellowship in Cosmetic Surgery at the Burkes Farber Clinics in Kennar, LA. He became Board Certified by the American Board of Dermatology in 1991 and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology and, of course, the American Medical Association.

Since 1995, he’s been providing care for dermatology problems that his patients have in St. Mary’s and Anne Arundel Counties. Diagnosing hundreds of melanomas, Dr. Saini realized the need for a Surgery Center.

Dr. Saini began the South River Ambulatory Surgery Center in Edgewater in 2003. He went beyond just establishing this state of the art center by becoming Joint Commission Accredited. It’s here that he works to remove skin cancers and dermatological ailments for patients while maintaining strict regulations set forth by the Joint Commission.

Working within the community, Dr. Saini has been the Corresponding Dermatologist with the Washington Nationals’ Baseball organization for their annual skin cancer screenings for the players, staff, friends, family, and the fans. While teaching at some of the local universities, Dr. Saini has also participated in many of the community health fairs and events.
