    Surgical excision of benign subcutaneous cyst. Performed in office on 01/22/20. Explained procedure carefully. Performed surgery painlessly in less than 20 minutes. Explained follow-up activities and range of permitted activities. Was patient and very professional, as was the administrative and medical staff. Highly satisfied. Would recommend without reservation.
