Dermatopathology Services in Orlando
Dermatopathology is a subspeciality (combining surgical pathology and dermatology) that focuses on the study of cutaneous diseases at the microscopic level. With more than 1500 skin disorders, a dermatopathologist must be familiar with several specialty areas of medicine (at a cellular level) to determine potential causes of skin diseases.

I've been to both the Altamonte and Dr. Phillips locations. I was checked in and out quickly and only waited about 15 minutes to see the provider. At the Dr. Phillips location I had a total body scan and felt comfortable with the female doctor and nurses. They found one suspicious mole and removed it for testing. I was surprised out how painless and quick it was. I was called about a week later with the results. In the Altamonte location I saw Anette. I was having a cosmetic procedure done and was explained the process throughout. She is very friendly and caring and I would recommend coming here to my friends and family.
