    Your doctor doesn't like tattoo's, or just didn't like HER tattoo?

    I'm glad to know that there are Coders who have sense of humer. Your funny Carol. Thanks for your help. My doctor just felt that the pt should see the dermatloglist instead him removing it. I gues he did'nt feel confident enough.
