Dr. Meghan Hession and wonder whether we’re talking about the same dermatologist I saw a couple of days before Christmas.
I think about her every time as I look at myself in a mirror and see a half-inch long scar on my cheek as a result of the biopsy she took a year ago.
I was waiting for the scar to disappear with time; however, according to other dermatologists, it is not going to happen.
She tried to explain my skin condition by using Latin terms and when I asked what it really meant, she repeated the same terms by razing her voice in annoyance, so I actually question her communication skills.
I speak several foreign languages, but unfortunately, I’m not fluent in Latin…
She didn’t only misdiagnose my sunspot by claiming that it was an eczema and giving me a medication for it–which obviously didn’t work–but also suggested to take “a few cells” from this sunspot for a biopsy.
“A few cells” were taken from the middle of my large quarter-sized sunspot.
I wished she would have told me that this scar she left on my face was permanent… I also have been wondering why it was necessary to cut my skin from the center of this sunspot, the most visible place on my face, and not from a less-noticeable location… According to other dermatologists, sunspots are very common and are easy to diagnose correctly: they are benign and performing a biopsy on them is completely unnecessary. Caveat emptor!
