Specialties

Dr. Bruce M Saal 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.

Dr. Saal is different! He is a perfectionist - once you realize this you will get the best treatment for any kind of skin condition. I have been going to him for over five years and have always found his staff, not over friendly, but polite, efficient and courteous. Yes, on occasion I have had to wait but Dr. Saal will spend a lot of time with you because he is so thorough.

DANGEROUS

I was burned by a laser treatment and had 2nc degree burns. The doctor was disrespectful and would not even see me. He finally agreed to have a nurse see me and she was laughing and rude as well. I finally had to be treated by REAL doctor and may have scars.

no more nagging foot problem

I had been suffering from this uncomfortable and displeasing issue for a very long time. I had been to and received treatment unsuccessfully from a few doctors. Dr. Saal's treatment plan and procedures seem to have cured it in a month. I would highly recommend him.Best regards,
