Dermatology and Plastic Surgery


Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons want a credentialed Dermatopathologist to read their specimens. At Aurora Diagnostics Bernhardt Labs, we have one of the best skin pathologists in the country. We wanted someone who had the respect of all our colleagues because it is important to know and respect who is reading their specimens. With most labs, specimens can be read by different pathologists on a regular basis not giving any consistency in your reads. Others have specimens shipped across the country giving way to logistical problems. We process all specimens in-house. Our doctors are a phone call away when needed for consultation, and readily initiate the call when they notice something suspicious.

Aurora Diagnostics Bernhardt Labs processes all special stains in-house. Our histology department utilizes Ventana's Immunohistochemistry system that creates unparalleled consistency with these stains.
