Dr. Arjang K Miremadi has the following 3 specialties
- Anatomic Pathology & Clinical Pathology
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.

My journey with Dr. Miremadi started 20 years ago. I had trouble with my skin off and on in my mid to late teens, but one day it crossed the line to completely unmanageable, it was horrendous and touched every aspect of my life. My dad had suggested an appointment with his long ago derm Dr.Obaji, but as it turned out Dr. Obaji had moved north by then to further develop products and treatments, my father had been told by the former coordinator that Dr. Obaji entrusted (yes, entrusted) Dr. Miremadi his clients. My first meeting with Dr. Miremadi was wonderful, his staff was lovely, even one of his patients assured me I was on my way to better skin, that Id chosen well, upon discussion I was told her skin was worse than mine just three months previous. How??? I was looking at a very pretty woman with beautiful skin, it was nearly flawless. I remember thinking, I will take just half of her improvement. When I made it to the back Dr. Miremadi gave me hope and some very straight talk. I remember him admonishing me for waiting so long (which I needed) and reminding me that a skin problem is not solely a cosmetic one, waiting for it to pass is never a good idea and that scarring is a real possibility. Acne scars are notoriously difficult to get rid of AND they tend to look worse with age. In short, he saved my skin then and now. I have always taken my skin very seriously since that first day in his office. I moved to NY and became a devoted follower of all things Wexler, but will never forget Dr. Miremadi and how he battled my very stubborn skin into dare I say great skin in what seemed like a blink of an eye. I had lunch with an old colleague a few months ago and her skin looked amazing, glowing, downright youthful. DR. MIREMADI !!!!! a series of treatments that frankly took my breath away. I am back on the west coast and ready to tackle some new issues with him. I am so glad to see he is still in practice, still making great skin possible. I can not in this space adequately convey my gratitude for this physicians talent.
I live out of state now and have gone to other doctors who ask me who I have seen in the past. I was just looking up doctor Miremadi to get his phone number so my dermatologist can call him for records. I can't believe there are only two review postings. In my experience Dr M. was always professional. He was recommended to me by a friend who had very bad scarring from acne. She saw Dr M who performed a chemical peel that reduced her scares considerably. Her skin looked great. I couldn't see any skin issues. Anyhow, he performed a chemical peel on me to remove melasma. Now my complexion was clear for approximately 4 mths when the pigment returned. Melasma is a pigment that is deep in the skin and can only be superficially removed. Nontheless I was very happy with the results. Dr M educates you on what to expect after the procedure based on the condition. Since moving out of San Diego I had two additional chemical peels that did not render the same results. I now realize how much I miss Dr M's expertise.
After many visits to other dermatologists I found dr. Miremadi. For the first time I felt like the dermatologist knew what he was doing, actually CARED about me as his patient and spent time fime explaining things to me. He even checked my skin (including feet!) for freckles without me asking. In the past dermatologists would not care much about my concerns about a cyst I had on my skin saying it's a cosmetic procedure and requires a 'mini surgery'. This doctor actually injected medicine into the cyst and it went away on its own. I'm very happy I found this doctor. I would definitely recommend him.
