Dr. John R Luckasen has the following 2 specialties
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.
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.

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Luckasen because he was the only one who could get me in while I was in town. It was my first time visiting a dermatologist, and he was no help. He was MAYBE in the room for 3 minutes. I went for acne, and all he did was ask me what I was there for, draw a face on his notepad, and write me a prescription. He didn't look at my skin ONCE or ask me anything about my routines or what products I use. He simply said "this is what it is" and wrote me a prescription (mind you I hadn't even been weighed by anyone, so there's no way he knew what dosage to give me). I told him the medicine he was prescribing me didn't react well with my body, and instead of finding another route to go he wrote me a prescription for another medicine to take as well to counter act the side effects of the first one. I have never had such a terrible appointment and am very upset with the fact that my time and money were wasted. DO NOT recommend.
It has been 5 years since I have seen Dr.Luckasen but he has always been one of the best physicians that I have ever visited. He has always been courteous and always given a correct diagnosis and treatment. From reading the other patients experiences I cannot believe that he has changed that much in 5 years. He and Dr. Fonda are the top Dermatologists that I have ever seen.
