Specialties

Dr. Ritu S Batra has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

My skin disorders.

I don't know what I would do without Dr Batra. She has helped my skin disorders in so many ways . I feel normal again, so to speak. Not only is she a great Doctor but she is a really sweet person! I really appreciate her skills and ((((((fountain of youth)))))... Addicted to the Tri Polar. Unfortunately I live in California in the winters only, so I will miss having Her as my doc this coming summer. I only trust her with my skin! Great staff as well!
