After taking much of 2019 off to spend time with her family, board-certified dermatologist Sandra Leyo DuPont, MD, is returning to Green Valley to provide comprehensive skin care at her own practice, Oasis Dermatology. She graduated with honors from University of Virginia School of Medicine in 1997.

She strives to deliver the highest quality of healthcare to all of her patients.
Patients' Choice Award (2017)
Patients' Choice recognition reflects the difference a particular physician has made in the lives of his/her patients. The honor is bestowed to physicians who have received near perfect scores, as voted by patients.
Accepting Medicare and most major insurance plans.
Dr. DuPont graduated from Rice University in Houston, Texas and completed his medical training at Baylor College of Medicine, also in Houston. His dermatology residency was done at the University of Arizona from 2010 - 2013, where he remained after graduation to complete a year-long fellowship in Mohs micrographic surgery and dermatologic oncology. He is an assistant professor in the U of A College of Medicine, Division of Dermatology.
Although Dr. DuPont is a board-certified dermatologist, his practice is limited to a specialty within dermatology known as Mohs Surgery. This is a 'tissue-sparing' microscopic technique of removing certain types of skin cancer in which the physician acts in the dual capacity of both surgeon and pathologist. Dr. DuPont performs over 1,500 cases per year between the University of Arizona Cancer Center, the Southern Arizona VA Hospital, and Oasis Dermatology. He is committed to treating each patient with respect and compassion and practices as a team with our staff to bring patient-focused expert care to all patients.
He enjoys spending time with my wife and three children. I also enjoy photography, hiking, skiing and fixing things around the house.
