Dermatopathology is a subspecialty within the practice of dermatology. A board certified dermatopathologist has completed four years of medical school, followed by residency training of four to six years in either dermatology or general pathology. Subsequent to the residency, an additional one to two years of dermatopathology fellowship training is completed.
Dermatopathology is the science of looking at samples of tissue (skin) through a microscope to determine the pathology (disease) of the specimen. We have dedicated experts in dermatopathology that specialize in skin diseases, including skin cancers, immunologic conditions, infections, alopecia and pediatric conditions.
Family Dermatology is committed to working closely with dermatologists to provide the most accurate diagnosis for our patients. We provide our patients peace of mind that their diagnosis is accurate which is the first step to safe and effective treatment.
