He completed his Bachelor’s in Honors Biology at West Virginia University, graduating Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa and as a member of Mountain honorary. After undergraduate, Tony enrolled at West Virginia University School of Medicine and completed his medical degree in 2018. While in medical school, Dr. Lacy was inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha as a 3rd year medical student and was voted by his peers into the Gold Humanism Honors Society. After completion of his intern year at West Virginia University Hospital, Dr. Lacy relocated to Chapel Hill, NC, to pursue his residency training in dermatology at the University of North Carolina. There, he had the honor of serving as Chief Resident during his final year of residency. It was during this period where he was first exposed to the power and benefit of Mohs surgery and reconstruction under the tutelage of former Zitelli & Brodland fellow Dr. Brad Merritt. Within the field of Mohs surgery and dermatologic oncology, Dr. Lacy’s research interests include improved risk stratification of skin malignancies through gene expression profiling, tumor characteristics and other preoperative variables. In his time outside of medicine, Dr. Lacy enjoys playing golf (with adequate sun protection, of course), basketball, traveling and spending time with his friends and family.
