Specialties

Dr. Alan M Mantell has the following 2 specialties

  • Dermatopathology

    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.

  • Dermatology

    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.

Overcharging and underobserving

I went for an annual checkup because I have melanoma in the family. He didn't provide a gown - told me to life up my shirt! I have had this exam many times in the past and what he gave was a cursory glance in a few places. Offered to remove a scabby spot, 2 seconds - $125. The 5 min. exam was $150. He said I could come back next year if I want to. Forget that - I'll just look in the mirror.

Didn't Listen

I went in with specific (and long-standing) complaints, and asked specifically that tests be run to check for bacterial skin infections, etc.I asked that removal and biopsy of a particularly problematic area be removed and sent to pathology.He looked for maybe 3 minuts, didn't answer half my questions, and jumped up, saying it was "Vulvodynia" Which is not a diagnosis at all. It is a group of symtoms that may or may not have anything to do with my problem.He diagnosed a vague, quasi-scienctific, and supposedly chronic/incurable condition with only his eyes and in under 5 minutes?I'd seen ten doctors before him, ranging in specialty, and not one of them tried to shoo me off with that. One of my doctors even called such a 'diagnosis' "Crap".So, here I am with no tests done, no actual effort by him to figure it out,and could have skipped the appointment for all the good it did me.
