A dermatologist told me to call a general surgeon at Lone peak hospital to look at getting something removed. I met with Dr. Preciado and within a couple minutes of looking at things he told me it should be handled by a plastic surgeon and I should not have been sent there by the dermatologist. Not only did he set me up automatically to get a call from the correct plastic surgeon, he also did not charge me for the visit and had his staff refund the co-pay back to my card. All without me asking.
