My Dr gave me a superbill (charge slip) with excision of 4mm neoplasm skin of buttucks. When I reviewed her progress note she wrote Punch biopsy taken today removing the entire lesion with minimal margin. When I questioned her about it- she said that she was told that if she removed the entire lesion then it would be excision- and it did not matter how she took it off. The only thing that I read on excision is that a scapel was used. Please let me know if anybody has any ideas. Thanks:)
