If you can't get into the doc in a reasonable amount of time, I would start with your GP to at least get it looked at.

I know the lady did it with a punch. Does that leave more scarring?
Also, there is no dermatologist in my town (closest is 1.5 hrs.), so I was thinking of going to a general practioner, but wasn't sure if I could go for something like this.

I am sure a plastic surgeon could possibly make the scars a bit less "ugly", but I am betting insurance wouldn't cover it just to make lesser scars.
