Limited Mohs

I went to this office because of his Mohs certification and knowledge. I knew I had a couple of skin cancers and previously have gone to doctors in Florida that perform Mohs procedure for removal. Mohs differs from other techniques in that microscopic examination of all excised tissues occurs during rather than after the surgery, thereby eliminating the need to "estimate" how far out or deep the roots of the skin cancer go. This allows the Mohs surgeon to remove all of the cancer cells while sparing as much normal tissue as possible. The procedure entails removing one thin layer of tissue at a time; as each layer is removed, its margins are studied under a microscope for the presence of cancer cells. If the margins are cancer-free, the surgery is ended. If not, more tissue is removed from the margin where the cancer cells were found, and the procedure is repeated until all the margins of the final tissue sample examined are clear of cancer. Not in this case. Large excisions were made, then sent to a lab and I had to wait a week for results and another appointment. I asked if they performed Mohs the normal way (while you wait) and they said they only do it for cancers of the face. Unfortunately, mine were on my arms. I didn't like waiting a week to find out if they got it all.

Two Stars

I didn't even see the doctor, so in fairness, I can't rate him. I will only say that I was requested to arrive 15 minutes prior to my appointment, which I did. I then waited another 30 minutes in the lobby. Another patient arrived about 15 minutes after my appointment time and was taken back within minutes, while I continued to wait. I was then called back to the exam room and waited yet another 15 minutes. I feel that a wait of 15 to 30 minutes in total is acceptable, but 45 minutes or longer is not. It is unprofessional and discourteous. I am a consumer and medical practitioners are a service commodity. A little detail so many tend to forget.
