Ben Treen, MD, FASMS
Born in New Orleans, Dr. Treen attended school there and one year in Spartanburg, SC before leaving early to attend college. On a National Merit Scholarship, he attended the University of Georgia, graduating early with a BSA in Biological Sciences. After working in a hospital OR he decided to go to medical school to be a thoracic surgeon, but was lured away by the variety inherent in dermatology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. After completing a residency in Internal Medicine at the Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation in New Orleans, he was accepted into dermatology residency at LSUMC in New Orleans where he was chief resident in his final year, and achieved board certification by the American Board of Dermatology immediately thereafter. As of September 24, 2022, he is also Board Certified in Mohs Micrographic Dermatologic Surgery.
Dr. Treen established a successful solo practice in Greenville, SC, encompassing all aspects of dermatology: general, medical, pediatric, surgical, cosmetic, and laser procedures. He has been an invited speaker and trainer for regional, national, and international meetings on advanced surgical, laser, and cosmetic procedures (including liposuction).
Licensed in North Carolina since 2004, he is excited to have moved to North Carolina and to be a part of Carolina Skin Care. His interests and hobbies include hunting, recumbent bicycling, water-sports, 5-string banjo, motorcycling, building stringed instruments, and Ham radio (call sign W1UGA reflects his passion for the Georgia Bulldogs).
“I absolutely love what I do, and I think it shows. I hope and expect to be helping patients with their dermatologic needs for years to come.”
Dr. Treen is a Fellow of the American Society for Mohs Surgery, the American Academy of Dermatology, and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.
