Dr. Roger I Ceilley 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.

I had 2 moles on my scalp that needed to get looked at. He glanced at them and said that they were fine with little concern. I didn't feel comfortable with his decision so I went for a second opinion. They immediately told me that they wanted to remove the moles. The tests came back and the moles were precancerous. This was very frustrating to me because of how much I stressed of my family history with skin cancer and how much I was concerned with the two moles. My girlfriend was in the room with me and she even pointed out how lackluster he was when examining them and how we felt he should have at least examined them more thoroughly instead of just glancing at them and brushing it off like it was no big deal.
