Dr. Howard B Gerber has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

My visit to to Dr. Gerber was great from start to finish. I needed an appointment quickly and the woman scheduling it was great. The office staff was friendly and I was in the office wiht the Dr. in less than 5 minutes. Dr. Gerber was great. He was very friendly and personable, answered every question I had and was very thorough. He conducted a full body exame of my moles, of which I have many. For once the Dr. didn't insist that something "looked suspicious" and needed to be removed and tested. He had an assistant who took very thorough notes as to every mark on my body. Although this was my first visit, I feel very confident that I will be returning to Dr. Gerber. He has a great base line of what my body is like now and that knowledge will help a great deal as I age and my body changes.
Dr. Gerber did not shake my hand or look me in the eye the entire time of my visit. (Which was very short) He seemed to be in a rush. However I did pay the asking cash price. Overall it was poor service, and Dr. Gerber, MD proscribed me with expensive medication that seems to have ZERO affect on my psoriasis. I feel I could have gotten better care from another physician.
