Wish I would have read the first reviewers account before going to Dr. Balle! It could have been written by me!! I had the EXACT same experience. My skin cancer looked like 2 pinpricks, yet he took off a quarter size of tissue. Thank goodness there was a plastic surgeon who could see me in another location, but how was I to know if he was good? I agree---I don't think he cares about the patient. He likes to take off a huge chunk, so he doesn't have to repeat the procedure. Also, we had to wait 3 hours to find out he wasn't able to close the wound, including 2 hours to find out the sample was clear. Initially, he said a Resident would do it, which I told him I was not comfortable with. Anyone can use a scalpel to take off the cancer, the way he did. Stay away from this guy!
