Dr. Lawrence L Bushkell Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Bushkill the Butcher and Nurse Ratched

Bushkill the Butcher (aka Dr. Lawrence Bushkill) mutilated me, and his own Nurse Ratched has the empathy of linoleum. If you think that One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a horror story, try Knoxville Dermatology Group. As I learned today from Paul Maben, P.A., and Maben's own nurse, Bushkill the Butcher had two choices: make an incision and close it with stitches, which would have required nothing more than Vaseline and a Band-Aid, or the crude procedure that he performed on me that has resulted in my wearing a large and bizarre cocoon that I can't change myself. When I called to ask that the dressing be changed by Knoxville Dermatology Group, Nurse Ratched came to the telephone and told me that there were no available appointments and that I should do it myself. I couldn't do it myself. So I called my primary care doctor's office for help, and the staff there told me to make another call to Knoxville Dermatology Group. So I called again, this time more assertive, telling them that I did not want to talk to Nurse Ratched again or ever see her again. Suddenly the staff decided that I could come in any time. When I showed up, even the new nurse assigned to me could not change the dressing and had to ask a P.A. for help (Paul Maben). My veterinarian could have done a better job than Bushkill the Butcher. Once this horrible episode is over, I will never, ever go back to Knoxville Dermatology Group.
