I was so relieved to hear the final result that I almost jumped off the table when he told me all was well. His surprise was great when I told him that I had watched the video's about the procedure priorto the procedure which made things so much easier for him. Every thing was explained every step of the way making this whole procedure a piece of cake. Thank you so much.

A minor excision though it was, I am thankful that Dr. Breithaupt excelled at the art of distraction. He and Tracy, the wonderful nurse, moved adeptly to cut, remove and stitch. My after care was clearly explained verbally and in writing.Within minutes an atypical mole was gone, never to threaten me again and I barely felt a thing. :)
