CLIA-certified Laboratory

Dermatopathology is a joint subspecialty of dermatology and pathology and to a lesser extent of surgical pathology that focuses on the study of cutaneous diseases at a microscopic and molecular level. We serve as a high-volume referral center for the local community and Southern California, addressing the full gamut of skin disease. Our dermatopathology laboratory offers an extensive selection of services.
