Dr. Samir B Patel 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.

What a great visit
Self-verified patient of Dr. Samir B Patel - Posted on October 18th, 2015
Dr. Patel runs a great practice. I was greeted by a very friendly staff, waited only about 5 minutes, and saw the doctor soon after. He asked a lot of questions and took an interest in my skin condition instead of just writing a script. His bedside manner is very good and he is very personable. The billing was simple and the follow up scheduled efficiently. Hats off to his whole team!

I went in for a routine examination of the lesion. I was greeted by a very friendly staff, and only had to wait in the lobby for about 5 minutes. Filling out forms, and all the other details was painless. Once I saw the doctor, he was very attentive, and explained everything at a level that I could fully comprehend. he also was able to diagnose my condition and provide the proper medication. My symptoms were alleviated within 3 days, & I am extremely satisfied with the service is at Dr Patel's office.

I had to visit Dr. Patel for a minor issue. The wait time was minimal and his staff was extremely professional. Consistent with the ratings I submitted, the experience was very positive. He spends time explaining things in a way I could understand, explains follow-up care very well, and his staff seems to be in synch with everything. I highly reccomend him to others who are seeking a specialist who actually cares and takes time to get to know "you".
