Dr. Jacob E Lau 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.

While being seen by Dr. Lau for years, I developed a skin growth that was discounted by him as benign. Dr. Lau told me âitâs too slow growing to be cancer so donât worry.â Eventually I was advised by another doctor to have the growth removed ASAP because it looked very suspicious. The growth was cancerous and because it grew for so long, it required significant radiation in addition to surgery. The radiation has caused me many health problems all because of Dr. Lauâs wrong diagnosis. After surgery, I tried to make an appointment with Dr. Lau because I wanted him on my growing âcancer teamâ of doctors, but he told me (through his assistant) he didnât want to see me at that time and wanted me to make an appointment in 6-8 weeks. Needless to say, today I see another dermatologist who actually knows what cancerous growths look like.

Dr. Lau has been a great dermatologist in treating my eczema. He has been patient with trying different medications, including suggestions on dietary changes to help minimize my eczema outbreaks. His staff is courteous, and when I have had questions or concerns, his staff, nurse or Dr. Lau have always returned my calls promptly-always by the end of the business day that I have called.I was highly recommend to Dr. Lau by my aesthetician, and I highly recommend him to anyone.
