Dermatologist & Mohs Surgeon

Aton M. Holzer, MD, is a seasoned Mohs surgeon who is the Director of Mohs Surgery in the Department of Dermatology at Tel Aviv-Sourasky (Ichilov) Medical Center in Tel Aviv, Israel, a major academic hospital in the heart of a bustling metropolis, where he supervises a busy Mohs unit with three surgeons, residents and student rotators, and also serves as director of the American College of Mohs Surgery Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology (MSDO) fellowship program. 
Dr. Holzer was born and raised in Queens, New York. He completed his undergraduate studies at Yeshiva University, graduating summa cum laude, and went on to complete a master's degree in modern Jewish history. He then attended medical school at Weill Medical College of Cornell University, where he graduated with an M.D. with Honors in Research, and where he was awarded the prestigious “Good Physician” award. He completed his internship in internal medicine at Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital, a four-year Research Track residency in dermatology at the University of Alabama-Birmingham, and a fellowship in Mohs Surgery and Procedural Dermatology at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas under the tutelage of Leonard H. Goldberg, MD. In the past, he has worked as a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon in both South Miami and Pembroke Pines, Florida and as a part-time teledermatology consultant for Refuah Health Center in Rockland County, New York. 
Since 2015, he has divided his time between Israel and the United States. He commutes back to the U.S. one week per month to treat Mohs patients in our East Brunswick office, as well as numerous other offices in the Northeast, mostly in communities that are relatively underserved by Mohs surgeons. He is a fellow member of the American College of Mohs Surgery and the American Academy of Dermatology, and is a member of the Israel Medical Association. Dr. Holzer has authored a published chapter in a dermatology textbook and has authored and co-authored dozens of articles published in a variety of peer-reviewed journals. He has delivered talks and his work has been presented at national and international Mohs and dermatology conferences. He lives in Beit Shemesh, Israel with his wife and six children.
