Dr. Paula M Nelson 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.

I wish I had seen all of these reviews before I started going to this practice. My original dermatologist left the practice and now I know why. I am suddenly getting bills from 2010 because they never submitted these bills to my secondary insurance and I never knew it. Now they want payment and have already sent my bills to a collection agency. Try calling their billing department in Georgia to get things straightened out, and you will get put on eternal hold. I am contacting the Better Business Bureau in the hopes that other people do not go through this painful experience. Stay away!
Stay away!!!! Far, far away!!! Be aware that not only is she involved in billing fraud, but she is cut happy!!! Seems to me that it is a conflict of interest when she owns the office AND the lab that does the biopsies!!! Claims I had melanoma, major surgery, ugly scar, deformed arm, nerve damage, and 6 biopsies preformed by another lab and guess what??? Absolutly no melanoma found anywhere. Took another small spot, sent for biopsy, again to HER lab, she tells me that I need "more margins removed" . Took the biopsy result to TWO different doctors, both say there is NOTHING wrong with me!!! She is nothing but a fraud!!!!!
