    gets set up for further exc. due to margins; however
    several days after being seen in the office pt is admitted
    to the hosp. by another phys for shortness of breath
    My doc is now consulted regards to the melanoma

    I would think that if the consult was in regards to the same melanoma that your provider biopsied previously, it would still be considered global. However, I'm curious to other opinions.
