Bad

Where they removed a mole for a biopsy the skin stated weeping clear fluid. Similar sores spread on my arms. When I called they were dismissive about it; they finally agreed to see me. They saw that it was serious and treated it, but wouldn't tell me what caused the sores. Then they wanted to charge me for treating what they caused.
