Dermatopathology

dermatopathyDermatopathology is the field of study dedicated to the examination of skin specimens under a microscope. Often, a dermatologist is required to take a small sample of skin for analysis in order to diagnose a rash or skin cancer. The dermatopathologist is the physician specifically trained to interpret this skin specimen. Dr. Ramsay Farah has received this highly specialized training and is board certified in Dermatopathology as well as Dermatology. It is often advantageous to have the dermatologist who is evaluating the patient in the clinic also interpret the skin biopsy specimen. At Farah Dermatology Center, our doctors can do both!
