A Punch Biopsy is a procedure in which a small round piece of tissue about the size of a pencil eraser is removed using a sharp, hollow, circular instrument. The tissue is then checked under a microscope for signs of disease. A punch biopsy may be used to check for certain types of cancer or skin conditions and changes that may lead to cancer.

Was seen quickly. Dr. Merryman is always kind, logical, and direct with me. Guided me through a difficult twin pregnancy 13 years ago and continues to take good care of me.
Doctor Franco is very professional she takes time to answer all my questions and explain what I have doubts on but most important to me of all she is very compassionate. I am ver pleased having her as my provider.
Dr. D. Grossman did his job in a very professional manner.
Informative, excellent rapport with patient, made me feel very comfortable and gave good advice.
My appointment was at 11:55 for a saline ultrasound and biopsy of tissue. Dr. Dufour was running behind almost an hour because he had to send someone to the hospital but he still took his time with me and didn't rush. He showed me on the screen what he was going to do and what he thought it was and even though it was a mildly painful procedure, it didn't take very long. I had never seen him before because he came after I was finished having my babies but he was awesome. Very nice and professional.
Dr. V, was irritated at performing procedure it appeared. She showed a lack of empathy and stated I would have to go to an OR and quickly left. I left very upset.
She seems to be interested in you a a person not just as a patient. Tells you what she is going to do and what she is doing. Stayed with me a few minutes to be sure I felt ok to leave.
She made me feel very comfortable and it was the first time I saw her. I was very satisfied.
It was an unpleasant issue that was necessary. Nothing against the doctor, it is just an unpleasant procedure.
Dr. Ninia and staff are always friendly and answer all of my questions.
Excellent staff, welcoming and efficient. Dr. Irwin is a fabulous doctor. Awesome bedside manner. She takes care of health issues precisely and cares for her patients. This is extremely comforting when dealing in her type of practice. Dr. Teresa Irwin is the best. So thankful for her expertise and knowledge.
She's always nice and always gives me good advice. I feel very comfortable with her.
Doctor is extremely professional and discusses step by step procedure which make you feel as ease.
Although the situation was difficult and a second doctor required for the biopsy, I was in great pain and discomfort for over 30 minutes. Aside from that, I knew there could be a possibility of requiring a biopsy...but I was not prepared for the possibility on the same day as the consult. Dr. Studer was actually considerate of my time and the need of coming back to the office ...so I appreciate that. Just wish that she or her assistant had contacted me prior to me arriving that day...and seeing the "tools" on the counter.
Always highly satisfied. DR Hernandez called me personally to inform me later about my old file and new images for any changes and concern regarding genetic testing due to my sisters health issues.
