Few medical practices boast multiple specializations underneath one roof. 360 Dermatology and Ambay Plastic Surgery offer a marriage of comprehensive dermatological care along with an array of plastic surgery services making it a unique convenience needed in the Brandon area. Dr. Aparna Ambay, Board Certified Dermatologist, and her husband, Dr. Raj S. Ambay, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, recognize the personal nature of healthcare and bring a family touch while offering patients the ability to consult with both doctors in the same room at the same time.

Dr. Raj explains their philosophy; “We’re interested in building a relationship and not so much a transaction.”

He and his wife built their practice with the need to really get to know their patients. Oftentimes, the pair take upward of one to two hours in consultation and educational training until patients are informed and comfortable. Too often, Dr. Raj laments, “people are unfortunately a part of factory-like care. Our vision of healthcare is to personalize it the way we think it’s supposed to be: families treating other families.”

Therefore, 360 Dermatology offers the full spectrum of dermatological services for the entire family including specialized surgeries for skin conditions and cancer as well as cosmetic services such as Botox, fillers, and acne scar removal. Dr. Aparna, recently named one of America’s top doctors, is uniquely trained in Mohs surgery, the gold-standard for certain skin cancers. Using this procedure, she is able to achieve a higher cancer-free success rate while preserving as much of the patient’s surrounding healthy skin as possible. Dr. Raj is specially trained in microsurgery and plastic surgery and able to offer a variety of treatments for the face, body and breast. He and his wife can provide many procedures on-site, but also partner with local hospitals and surgery centers when necessary.

The Ambays also hope to reach the military community. A 19-year veteran of the military, Dr. Raj led multiple surgical teams in Iraq and Afghanistan performing trauma surgeries, and now his family hopes to form lasting bonds with active and retired military families in the area.

360 Dermatology and Ambay Plastic Surgery accept most major insurances such as Tricare and Medicare and financing options are available. 360 Dermatology is located at 431 Lithia Pinecrest Rd. in Brandon.
