What Is A Skin Biopsy?
Skin cancer, infection, eczema, and psoriasis can all be diagnosed with a skin biopsy. At Naperville Internist, Dr. Rachit Marwaha performs skin biopsies for patients in and around Naperville, IL. This simple and fast procedure helps determine the proper treatment for your particular skin issue. During your consultation, Dr. Marwaha will review the type of biopsy he recommends. After the tissue sample has been collected, it will be sent to a lab for analysis. Necessary treatment will be provided after the results come in.
What Can I Expect from A Skin Biopsy?
A skin biopsy usually takes about 15 minutes to complete. Dr. Marwaha will numb the area where the sample will be taken using a local anesthetic to ensure you don't feel any pain. You may require a bandage or stitches to close up the wound after the biopsy. There are three different types of biopsies available, and Dr. Marwaha may use one of the following:
- Shave biopsy: A tiny sample of the top layer of skin is scraped off with a razor blade
- Punch biopsy: A small puncture is made to include deeper layers of the skin using a circular blade
- Excisional biopsy: A little incision with a scalpel is made to extract a suspicious-looking lump or an area of abnormal skin, including a small amount of normal skin
Naperville Internist Reviews
Dr. Rachit Marwaha (or Junior to Dr. Rakesh Marwaha’s Senior) has been instrumental in helping me carve out the best version of myself. He does not allow you to end up in a devastating cycle of Rx’s, has a straight forward demeanor & can discuss important health concerns or answer questions with honesty & empathy. He listens. He will take the time if you need him to give it. Just be sure not to hesitate to make your appt as the times do get fully booked. The move to their new Naper facility was crucial- he and his father, as well as a handful of other health&medical pro’s now operate out of a large, renovated, stand-alone location very accessible from any surrounding suburb. Their online portal makes booking appts or viewing test results easy. I was a patient of Rakesh for years and he is a very tough act to follow as he’s always given the best care w/ fair pricing, and Rachit is carrying on these values. If person setting appt is rude just know that doesn’t carry over to the doctors!
Dr, Rachit Marwaha is a fantastic doctor. Over the past year I have gotten to know him well and I couldn’t be more confident in his skill and expertise in the area of Internal medicine. In addition to his superior knowledge, he has a wonderful bedside manner and you feel like you were respected and understood when you leave. Dr.Marwaha JR. adds so much to this practice. So lucky to have him as my doctor. Sincerely, Judy Lawlor
Dr. Rachit Marwaha saw me during my hospital observation stay, and I did my follow-up visit with him a week later, which was fine so I'm giving him a 5 star. During my follow-up visit, I left the office and remembered two questions pertaining to my results that I forgot to ask, so I called a day or two later and asked if I could speak with the doctor to get the answers to my two questions. I was told the doctor would call me the next day at 7:15p. On the afternoon of the day I was expecting Dr Rachit Marwaha's call, I received a call from the front-desk person informing me I needed to pay my co-pay for the call at 7:15p. I went on to explain to her that I merely needed to ask two questions concerning my test results that I forgot to ask during my visit. She asked me what were the questions, I told her, she then said I'll give the doctor the message and if he calls and wants to charge you, I'll let you know, I said okay, and never heard back from either.
