This fee covers the in-office punch biopsy procedure. Your provider will use a circular tool to remove a small section of skin including deeper layers (epidermis, dermis and superficial fat) in order to examine it more closely.
***Please note the tissue sample (the biopsy) will be sent to a lab for testing and you will receive an additional bill from Dermpath Diagnostics for the diagnostics they perform. This bill should be ~$70-$130 PER BIOPSY (i.e. 2 biopsies will be $140-$260). Please ask your dermatologist during your visit if they anticipate that it will cost more.
