Patch testing: Patch testing is a dermatological procedure used in patients with suspected allergic contact dermatitis. Patch testing typically
requires several visits in one week. Your physician will determine if this test is right for you.
Pathology: Dermatologists work closely with other specialties to provide a complete network of services for our patients. Surgically removed moles and cancerous growths are often sent for microscopic examination and consultation to ensure the most precise diagnosis and highest quality of care.
Most insurance companies do not require a referral to see a dermatologist.
