About me

Min Deng, MD, is the Director of Mohs Micrographic Surgery at MedStar Washington Hospital Center/MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. As a board-certified dermatologist and fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon, Dr. Deng has subspecialty expertise in cutaneous oncology, including the diagnosis and management of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, and less common or aggressive tumors.

Dr. Deng received her Bachelor of Science from M.I.T. and Doctorate of Medicine from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. She completed her dermatology residency at the University of Chicago, where she also served as Chief Resident. She then joined Cooper University Hospital to complete a subspecialty fellowship in micrographic surgery and dermatologic oncology. In 2017, she received the Press Ganey Top Provider award, given to the top two percent of providers nationally, based on patient feedback.

She is a member of the American College of Mohs Surgery, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, American Academy of Dermatology, Association of Professors of Dermatology.

Dr. Deng brings a passion for excellence in patient care, and resident education. Her clinical interest is in the management of skin cancers, including high-risk and rare skin cancers. As a fellowship-trained Mohs micrographic surgeon, Dr. Deng performs microscopically-guided surgery for the treatment of skin cancer, which offers patients the highest cure rate possible (up to 99%), while minimizing the removal of normal skin. She is part of the Georgetown University Hospital cutaneous oncology tumor board, where she works with specialists in surgical oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, and otolaryngology to provide a multidisciplinary approach for patients with complex skin cancers.

Philosophy of Care
“I see the role of a physician as a knowledgeable and skilled provider, but also as a counselor and patient advocate—someone to help the patient make sense of the most current medical information and explain their benefits and limitations, so that the patient can make the most informed decision possible. The greatest compliment I can receive is for my patients and colleagues to say they would trust their friends and family members into my care.”

    Dr. Deng was very thorough, kind and a great listener. Explained everything and answered all my questions. She was a good teacher to the resident. She did a very thorough exam and did multiple scouting biopsies. I was really impressed by her.
