Dermatopathology Atlanta, GA

Dermatopathology Atlanta, GA, MetroDerm, PC

Our practice has physicians trained and board-certified in dermatology, dermatopathology, and Mohs surgery allowing seamless integration of diagnostic information to find the best diagnosis. Once the diagnosis is established, our physicians design and coordinate a treatment plan based on years of experience and training.  Our goal is to keep your skin as healthy and beautiful as possible by applying an integrated approach to cutaneous medicine. 

What is Dermatopathology?

Dermatopathology is a subspecialty of dermatology that studies skin disease at a microscopic level. It encompasses both the diagnosis of individual patients through the examination of skin biopsies, and the study of the causes of skin diseases at the cellular level. Dermatopathologists work in close association with dermatologists. In fact, many doctors train in both specialties.

Microscopic examination of cells is a critical part of diagnosing skin cancer and other skin disorders, MetroDerm’s dermatopathologist, Dr. Adar Berghoff, and pathologist, Dr. Dino Anastasiades, work closely with all of our dermatologists and Mohs surgeons.

One of the greatest challenges of dermatopathology is the high number of different skin diseases. There are an estimated 1,500 different rashes and skin tumors, including variants. Therefore, dermatology and dermatopathology are among the most complex specialties in medicine. MetroDerm, P.C. is fortunate to have a dermatopathologist and a pathologist as part of its full-time staff. Dermatopathologists and pathologists are not part of all dermatology practices.

How Does Dermatopathology Differ from Dermatology?

A dermatologist is trained in the clinical appearance of diseases related to the hair, skin, and nails. A dermatopathologist examines skin specimens under a microscope and makes diagnoses based on the history provided by the dermatologist and the patterns of cells on the microscope slides. The dermatologist performs skin biopsies and the dermatopathologist reads the microscope slides.

TESTIMONIALS

“I have been going to Dr. Alford for several years. She is great! She is so pleasant and listens to any concerns you may have. She is thorough and professional. I always look forward to seeing her. If you’re looking for a great dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Alford.”
Robyn C.

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”

Robert H.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.
“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.

“Dr. Pearl and her staff are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough about them all.”

Christye N.
“I have always had the best of care from Dr. Niren. I’ve been going to her since 1986, and I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and the time she spends with me.”
Debbie J.
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”
