Laser Clinic

Deb Auld, PA-C provides care and treatment of patients with lesions to be removed.  These can include but not limited to verrucas (warts), moles, papillomas (skin tags), actinic keratosis (pre-malignant), dermatofibromas, mucoceles, adjunct to ingrown toenail ablation, condylomas and external hemorrhoidectomy. There are some instances where a biopsy of the area will need to be completed before the laser treatment and removal to identify if the lesion is malignant or benign.

The Laser Clinic is held twice a month on Thursday mornings. A brief appointment is required prior to laser treatment for staff to examine and assess areas of concern. This appointment will  determine if a biopsy is needed before treatment and if a CO2 laser is the proper course of treatment.  Please note most insurance companies require prior notification before any biopsy procedures or laser treatments can be completed.

Deb Auld, PA-C has more than 20 years of experience with laser treatment and procedures. WCH hopes to expand our laser services in the future. Please contact the WCH Medical Group at 618-327-2225 with any questions or to schedule your appointment today.
