Dr. Laurel R Schwartz 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.

Dr. Schwartz I feel is very knowledgeable in her field and is forthright to any of my questions. She has excellent people skills and makes you feel very comfortable as a patient. She is very thorough and does not rush you out the door. If she does have a fault perhaps it is that she cares too much and allows you extra time. Personally I don't mind waiting a few extra minutes. What is important is that she knows her field and presents it to you in a pleasing and professional manner.

I have seen several doctors in my time and have never experienced a doctor so rude and unprofessional stemming from my preference not to be seen by a student doctor. The last time I checked this was America and I do have choices. I have insurance that pays for my visits and as a patient/customer my choice and concerns should be respected. I should not be made to feel that discussing my personal health issues with a student is something that I "have" to do and if I choose not to I will be subjected to attitude and substandard treatment. I recognize that Jefferson is a "teaching" hospital, however I am one of thousands of patients seen there and if my electing not to be seen by a student will make all the difference, that is not my issue.
