Conditions and Services

A dermatopathologist is an expert in the microscopic diagnosis of diseases of the skin. This entails the examination and interpretation of specially prepared tissue sections, cellular scrapings, and smears of skin lesions by means of light microscopy, electron microscopy, and fluorescence microscopy. Dermatopathologists provide a personalized, consultative service to your physician, which includes analyzing your personal medical information in conjunction with clinical photography and observations through the microscope. The ultimate goal is to provide the best possible patient care for you.
