This is a cross-sectional survey distributed to a convenience sample of patients in a waiting room of an academic dermatology clinic. The survey assesses patient experiences with full body skin exams and attitudes towards full body skin exams. The survey is designed to help investigators better understand how many patients are not getting full body skin exams, why this may be occurring, and what types of interventions may be enacted to increase the number of patients getting full body skin exams.
