Biopsies

Minor Medical Procedures

Biopsies are a diagnostic test that we use to help check for signs of disease.  The two main types of biopsies performed in our office are shave biopsies, where a surgical blade is used to shave off a piece of tissue, and punch biopsies, where a skin punch is used to core out a piece of tissue.

The pieces of tissue are sent to a pathologist who will examine the specimen to determine causality or pathology.  From there, your dermatologist can better determine the course of treatment for your condition.

What People Say

This was the absolute best doctor visit I have ever been to from start to finish.  Very polite and professional staff.  I was in and out of the appointment in less than an hour.  Amazing!

Always excellent service and everyone is so friendly and nice. And I love going to Misty, she always explains things to me and makes you fell special. That means a lot to a just slightly senior person, ha.

She was able to answer all my questions. The money seemed reasonable, which I’ll pay out of my HRA since I haven’t met my deductible this year, and they explained there would also be a lab fee for the biopsy; if they hadn’t explained that lab fee to me beforehand, I think that bill would have confused me. Good job, everybody!
