Why don’t you accept insurance?

By not accepting insurance we are not bound by the dictates of a third party that believes it is entitled to your privileged personal information. Our pricing plans are transparent; there are no hidden or surprise fees. The time and costs we save by not negotiating with a third party payer translates to better quality time spent on you.

How do I have a suspicious skin lesion evaluated by a pathologist?

Often times the removed lesions are benign and don't require further evaluation, but you have the option to have a lesion sent to a lab for evaluation by a pathologist.

Are there any procedures that you don't do at your clinic?
We don't treat pilonidal cysts, hemorrhoids, ganglion cysts, bone fractures, or hand injuries involving nerves, tendons, or blood vessels. Some lesions are beyond what we can safely treat in our clinic and we would refer to specialists.
All of our procedures are performed under local anesthesia.
