Our providers deliver high-quality treatment to improve patient’s health and overall quality of life. We believe in serving our patients and their caregivers with hospitality and generosity. We exhibit compassion, kindness, and empathy for our patients throughout every step of their diagnosis, treatment, and healing. If you find yourself or a loved one in need of dermatologic care, know that the SDG team is here to guide and support you.

Our Team

SDG was founded by Dr. Christopher Harmon in 2009. The practice was built on a strong foundation of highly-skilled dermatologists and surgeons who share a common passion for service to our community and beyond. SDG offers care in many rural areas of Alabama that would otherwise lack access to dermatologic or skin cancer care options. This heartbeat for those in need extends to medical mission work throughout the world that many of the SDG team members are proud to participate in annually.


Surgical Dermatology Group’s Vestavia location is located in the SmoothRock Center at 1940 Stonegate Drive. The surgical procedures and medical care delivered in this facility yield healthier skin and better living, but SmoothRock represents more than medicine and surgery. It is a multi-dimensional facility serving a community of people with complementary brands and collaborative entities—all working together for healing the body, transforming the mind, and restoring the soul.
