DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT ANY TYPE OF SKIN LESION!!!!! We took our 16 year old son to Dr. Kayal and the nightmare began! First, without either of his parents in the room, he berated our son for not coming to see him sooner and then proceeded to tell him he had skin cancer! We waited for several days for the test results and received a telephone call at 4:00 p.m. on a Friday afternoon from Dr. Kayal tell us our son had been diagnosed with childhood melanoma. He went on to tell us how aggressive this type of manoma was and the tramatic treatments our son would need. Dr. Kayal told us this OVER THE PHONE on a Friday afternoon so he could quickly get out of town! Several days later we went in for another biopsy. After several weeks and attempts to get an answer regarding these test results, we were told our son was fine. However, and thank goodness, the pathologist that read the second report was not comfortable with the result and recommended further testing. The entire time we were in Dr. Kayal's office meeting with him and the pathologist, Dr. Kayal kept looking at his watch like we were wasting our time. Remember....we were discussing our son's health and future!!!!! After several MONTHS of waiting for the new test results my husband had to contact the testing facility directly to get the results. The HIGHLY recommended further testing. At this point we were done with Dr. Kayal! Through Kennestone Hospital we were referred to Dr. Keith Delman at Emory University. Dr. Delman did a lymph node biopsy and discovered that the melnoma had now spread to our son's lymph nodes. Dr. Delman immediately removed the lymph nodes in the area of our son's lesion and put him on a year long treatment of interferon injections. If we had not continued to pursue answers and just trusted Dr. Kayal, I don't think our son would be with us today!
