"Provider" performed a check for skin cancer issues on the body that was not as thorough as I hoped (given my past history with basal & squamous lesions).
I did not think that this was a throual exam. It felt like a fly-by. I was surprised when the doctor left the room without any discussion. I will be finding a new Dermatologist.
Again - I still don't have my biopsy results.
There were negative reviews about this MD online - about her rushing through skin checks. I found her to be thorough, pleasant, and diligent explaining all normal and abnormal skin issues in detail, even ones I hadn't noted.
