Robby was Born April 23 2013. Feb 2014 we noticed a small bump on his face. The pediatrician told us to keep an eye on it. When it began to grow and change colors we went to a dermatologist. The dermatologist recommended to remove it but did not know what it was. We were not confident with the dermatologist so we scheduled the surgery with Dr. Barrera whom we know very well.
