I am so thankful that you were able to remove and repair my skin cancer. I didn’t know that a plastic surgeon would do this for me and Medicare would pay. Thank you. It really looks better and better every week. You are great! I really think you should blog on this as I am not sure people know that plastic surgeons are willing to help with skin cancer. Why would I ever go to a dermatologist for this again?
Thanks for the kind words.
I have been taking care of skin cancer for years and am a regular Medicare (not Medicare HMO) provider. I guess not many people know that they can often have skin cancer removed and repaired by plastic surgeons to minimize the appearance of the event. Repair of disfigurement might also be covered but it varies by insurer.
