What Dermatopathologists Do
Pathology is the scientific study of the nature of disease and its causes, processes, development, and consequences. Pathologists are physicians who have specialized training in the discipline of pathology to examine and interpret laboratory tests, such as skin biopsies. Pathology reports help clinicians to make decisions on the diagnosis and treatment of their patients.
Pathologists are utilized by every medical specialty. Pathology Associates of St. Thomas specializes in dermatopathology. Dermatopathologists are pathologists who are trained in evaluating skin, nail and hair diseases.
Our singular focus on dermatopathology gives us an in-depth understanding of dermatological diseases. This knowledge allows us to build consultative relationships with providers to enhance their ability to diagnose and treat patients who are suffering with skin, nail and hair conditions.
