Dermatopathology is a joint subspecialty of dermatology and surgical pathology that focuses on the study of cutaneous diseases at a microscopic and molecular level. This specialty also encompasses analyses of the potential causes of skin diseases at a basic level. Dermatologists and physicians rely on the dermatopathologist to examine biopsies to provide a conclusive diagnosis. Dr. Thomas Long has joined COPC as our dermatopathology specialist. He works closely with the dermatology providers in and around Central Oregon to deliver comprehensive patient care.
