Dermatopathology

When diagnosis of a skin condition cannot be adequately attained through visual examination alone, a skin biopsy is sent to the dermatopathologist, who studies the tissue on a cellular level to produce the most accurate diagnosis possible. In addition to their dermatology practice, Drs. Linwood Bond, Jr. and Amy Prakash also specialize in dermatopathology. Dr. Bond serves his dermatology patients from his South location, while his dermatopathology practice is housed out of the Bella Vista Building.
