So we took a hit on our medical benefits at work and with this new plan our preferred provider is an assembly line operation. They get the most people seen in the least amount of time. You see a Physicians' Assistant who assesses you and then a Physician comes in and maybe spends a minute with you to write a script or something. I made an appointment as I had a suspicious mole just above my ankle. Seems to me like it has got darker since I noticed it. I went in for my appointment and got in after a long wait and met with the Physicians' Assistant. He looked at it and then I waited for the Dermatologist to look at it and they agreed it was suspicious enough to cut it off. To my surprise, the Physicians' Assistant did the surgery. I was wary at first but they assured me that this is standard procedure. He cut a wide swath but he seemed to do OK. I got bandaged up and went home, waiting for the test results on the mole. Got a call now at home. The mole is atypical. Not cancerous but precancerous. Not only that, but I have to go back because they didn't cut deep enough and didn't excise the entire perimeter. This time I suppose they will cut deeper.
