Dr. Scott Darling has the following 3 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
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 will only see board certified dermatologists from this point on. My experience with this doctor is the least professional I have ever experienced. Had I not followed my gut and had a thorough check up with a another dermo days after seeing Darling I would likely be facing a dangerous medical situation. You have to follow your own instincts. Unfortunately, I did not initially follow mine.
Irritated that they took my insurance card on my original visit and billed me for the first visit - which I paid by credit card. Then they called me back after my second visit and asked to add my second visit to my credit card so that "this charge could also be credited toward my insurance deductible." Their words. When I received my explanation of benefits from my insurance provider, they stated that Dr. Darling was not part of the network. Dr. Darlings office surely knew that they were out of network for my insurance company, yet they led me to believe that they were part of the network. Now I've lost the entire amount of my billing toward my insurance deductible. Also - before I left on my last visit, they all but twisted my arm into writing a great review of their service. Don't let them do that to you! Write the review at home if you want to. After the dust settles. My bad for not looking this up on my insurance website first. Their bad for not being honest with me. I won't use their service again - or recommend them. This was underhanded.
