I would only trust Dr. Vicar to treat my hands. He has recommended surgery to remove a cyst on the bottom of my thumb. I also have a small cyst starting on the top of the same thumb that he isn't as concerned about, but I hope he will change his mind and remove both when the time comes.

Checking out could have been better. The lady that was in charge of checking me out was trying to take care of another matter and I had to wait. All I needed to do was to give her the blue slip of paper. I did not need an appointment.
