I went in for a rash and ended up with the Dr. cutting me for a biopsy without my permission and in my opinion for no substantial reason. Now I get to pay for it, insurance deductible. Cut stung for a week and is still irritating, not to mention I have a compromised immune system do to Crohn's. My opinion make sure you ask what their doing before they do it, IE: they move fast, and set boundaries or they will find something!!!
