Patient Comments (1)
La Jolla, CA |
I will never go to her again. When she was preparing to take a skin biopsy from my forearm she said she was going to give me a local lidocaine injection and asked if in case of side effects did I wish to be resuscitated? As UCSD Faculty involved in many clinical trials I am familiar with consent forms. I was deeply shocked that this would even be a question for a biopsy. It made me seriously question Dr. Paravar's common sense. I was not asked this when I had the mole removed across the hall.
