As a dermatologist working at City of Hope, Badri Modi, M.D. focuses on identification and management of high risk skin cancers such as melanoma. Furthermore, he cares for patients with cutaneous complications from the treatment of internal malignancies like leukemia and breast cancer, which can be as or more devastating than the underlying disease.
