When I checked in, every person said I was scheduled for a laser treatment but I wanted to hae the doctor check the bump beofre it was lasered to make sure something else was not going on. She could not see anything more but I explained that it was increasing in size and concerning me. Then she did not have time to laser it. She was going to try to fit me in but looked distressed so I said I would make another appointment. I left upset because I felt that she did not really understand what was going on with my lip and did not have time to address it.
