Excision

Our office does excisions on many different types of growths.  Thanks to a popular TV dermatologist, many people are now familiar with cyst excisions, but nearly all skin excisions are similar in practice.  Most excisions involve the dermatologist cutting into the skin to remove some sort of tissue.  Usually the area to be excised is numbed with a local anesthetic.  It is then opened with a surgical blade, tissue is removed, and sutures are used to close the area.

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!
