5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery
My primary care doc referred me to Dr Schlesinger's practice because of a blemish on my collarbone which changed in size rather quickly. I saw Dr Chris Buthorne at the Ashley Rd office for a body scan (checking for possible cancerous skin blemishes). He biopsied two spots, one between my eye and eyebrow in addition to the collarbone. The spot near my eye was tested to be basal cell cancerous....

Laurie was very informative and came in to check on me, she also gave me a dry erase board in case I needed to write something. I just had it done today but she did say she would call to check on me on day 2 or to call if I had any questions.

I go to this office for regular dermatology appointments. They are easy to get in to, have a beautiful office and are well versed on all the lastest technology. This particular appointment didn't go as smooth, with a wait time of 1.5 hours. However, I will say that I've been there three times, and this is the first time I haven't been in and out quickly. When I asked if this would cause bruising (as i didn't want to go to work with bruising) I was told by the staff, "it depends...not normally"... However upon seeing the doctor, he instantly said I could expect bruising....SOOOO, I was a little not happy about that because I would have arranged my schedule accordingly. Turns out he was right! I'm on day four and still have bruising. The day after, it felt feverish almost, but not like an infection. It was swollen and tender to the touch. The next day was a bit better. Waiting for the swelling and bruising to go away completely before deciding if I'll do this again. I have my fingers crossed!
