About Francisco “Pancho” Ancaya
Francisco “Pancho” Ancaya was born in New Jersey and has lived in Lake Wales since age three. He is very attached to the area, and proud and excited to now be practicing here.
The son of 2 longtime area physicians, Ancaya grew up immersed in medicine, specifically in dermatology and surgery. He then worked with his parents for 7 years as a Certified Physician Assistant in both family practice and dermatology, and also as the first assist in general and urological surgery.
Pancho is passionate about the practice of general dermatology for all ages, and for all types of skin conditions, and is equally adept at both non-surgical and surgical treatments. He especially enjoys the challenge of diagnosing and effectively treating even the most complex and difficult cases.
”As a Physician Assistant, what I enjoy the most is the human element of helping and caring for people, especially right here in the same city where I grew up.”
