Two of his foremost goals as a dermatologist are the most accurate and earliest possible diagnosis of skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and particularly malignant melanoma. Dr. Hurt is particularly concerned with the overall increase in the number of these types of skin cancers, especially in the sunny and active Colorado lifestyle, and seeks to prevent the spread of these tumors through early detection and treatment. As a result, skin cancer screening examinations are generally recommended for all new patients.
Dr. Hurt is proud to be a Colorado native currently living in Denver. A dog lover with a feisty Yorkshire Terrier named Austin, he is an avid supporter of the Human Rights Campaign and the CU Athletics program. He enjoys playing and watching tennis, softball and volleyball.
