Dr. Ahmad Fathi has the following 2 specialties
A dermatopathologist is an expert in both dermatology and pathology. They specialize in diseases related to the skin, but where a dermatologist would examine a potentially-cancerous mole by looking at it, a dermatopathologist would examine your skin cells in a lab, more like a pathologist.
Beyond just skin cancer, dermatopathologists also study a wide range of skin conditions, including everything from warts, moles, spider veins and herpes, to dermatitis, rashes, vitiligo and other conditions related to skin discoloration.
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

Dr. Fathi is an awesome doctor and I would recommond him highly. Dr. Fathi is one of the most experienced doctors I have ever met - he saved my life - I went to see him regarding allergies and I had something on my neck and Dr. Fathi did not mess around - he immediately sent me to Community Hospital and had them run tests on me. One week later I found out it was cancer and he referred me to an oncologist - I was so scared but Dr. Fathi and his amazing staff took over and made the appointments for me with these doctors - I'am so thankful for them. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Fathi.
I purposely wanted to find a rating website for this doctor so I could inform potential patients to not make the mistake I did...going to this doctor.I had some dermatological problems on my foot and had to go through NOT ONE BUT TWO SURGERIES...and the problem is still not fixed!Both him and his staff alike are so emotionless and uncaring. At one point, he just gave me some antibiotic cream and told me to put it on myself! He doesn't answer your questions, doesn't seem like he wants to, and needs to retire NOW! The office is old and his technology is severely outdated (doesn't even have materials for LASER surgery...only does BURNING.)Unacceptable. Save your time and money. Do NOT go to this monster!

I went to this doctor because I had a cyst on my head. I was able to have the infected cyst removed within two days of my appointment which was good as it was hurting me. I had to return to the office around 10 days later to have the stitches removed. I made three trips to this office and was always pleased with this Doctor and his staff. I would definately return if the occasion arises.
I visited this doctor because I heard his prices for cosmetic procedures were cheap. Well, as the saying goes, "you get what you pay for"! I saw this Dr.(?)to correct acne scarring and I had to suggest procedures for him to utilize on my face! He did not use gloves, and I did not see him wash his hands. He claims to have been in business for several years and his office is outdated. He does not have the latest technology and when you ask him a question, he barely answers. I informed him that I had acne in my chest area, and he did not address that concern at all! He wrote two prescriptions for me, but did not tell me what to use them for, in fact, I had to have the nurse to ask him how he wanted the prescriptions used. I really think his passion for this profession has deteriorated and he should seriously consider retiring. I will be going to another dermatologist in Illinois who has advance technology and a website with before and after photos of REAL patients. Oh yeah, did I mention that it will cost more but I am sure the results will be much better? If there is anyone out there considering visiting this office please reconsider.
