Specialties

Dr. Hugo R Paulson has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Garbage of a "doctor"

he didn't do any kind of check up on me what so ever, he just looked at me and said i'm fine. I went in to check if any of my moles were cancerous or precancerous and the only thing he did was make me feel uncomfortable by getting in my face while he talked to me. Apparently he forgot what personal space was. His reasoning behind not looking for anything was that he has been doing this for a long time and did not need to send out any tests and cancer runs in my family. When i asked why he wouldn't take any of them off to check if there was anything wrong he responded your insurance can cover it if something is wrong or abnormal, i responded by telling him about how the one grew since the last time i got a check up and it gets irritated occasionally and he said there is nothing wrong, but if you would like to have any removed it will be $350 up front and your insurance will not cover it. I asked him, "what if something comes back wrong? do i get my money back?" he looked at his assistant and they said i don't know, maybe some, but probably not. I will never recommend this man for anyone, he has poor social and personal skills and does not know what personal space is, and instead of doing his job he is choosing to make people pay out of pocket even more.

Very Good Service

DR. Paulson performed well for me and I am very satisfied. The receptionist however is a different story. It would be an improvement to have a robot sign you in for services!

One Star

He talked to me like I was an idiot. He didn't come close to diagnosing my problem. Worst doctor I have ever encountered.

Dr. Paulson is the Best!

I have visited at least 6 dermatologists in Las Vegas over the last 30+ years and Dr. Boyer (long deceased) and Dr. Paulson are by far the very best.
