Kyle - I'm sorry you were dissatisfied. Even though chalazion removal is considered a minor procedure, it is still a surgery and standard of care dictates that the physician try non-invasive methods of correction before a surgery. Most insurance companies also want other methods explored before they will authorize surgery. Also, any appointment, whether for a surgery or exam, must be scheduled in advance.
