Specialties

Dr. Fernando R Decastro has the following 3 specialties

  • Clinical & Laboratory Dermatological Immunology
  • 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.

  • 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.

Excellent dermatologist!

As a nurse, who used to work for a different dermatologist, I can say Dr. De Castro is the best dermatologist I have ever seen! I recently had a lesion removed from my face by him, and am very happy with the result. I'm naturally an anxious person, & was nervous about having it removed since it was on my face, but he calmed my fears. He is a fast, confident, and efficient doctor. You can tell he knows his stuff, and has an excellent bedside manner. I felt like I got my money's worth as a patient, and the treatment I sought. He was very nice as well. I will definitely keep him in mind for future dermatology needs. :)
