Why CTA Pathology?

We are a group of dermatopathologists with a passion for providing quality service to clients and patients alike. Our team of skin, hair, and nail experts specializes in dermpath consultations, direct immunofluorescence, digitized slide scanning, immunohistochemical & special staining. CTA Pathology’s providers share many decades of combined diagnostics experience with training from Baylor College, Cornell University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Northwestern University, Stanford University, University of California (San Francisco & Davis), and the University of New Mexico.

Our team of 8 dermatopathologists is equipped to provide accurate and timely diagnoses for a large variety of tumors and dermatitides. For a diagnosis, we can rapidly perform histologic processing, or we can provide expert consultation on outside slides. Using our digital pathology platform, our team of dermatopathologists is able to share cases and work collaboratively to arrive at a correct diagnosis. We are especially proud of our expertise in the diagnosis of pigmented lesions, alopecia, and nail diseases. We also provide high-quality consultation for immunobullous diseases, using direct immunofluorescence studies. Highly-sensitive PCR for detection and speciation of tinea and other fungi, especially from the nails, and for herpetic infection is also available.


We offer seamless service and turnaround times of 24-48 hours. Our digital pathology platform is easily accessible from the comfort of your own home, allowing for greater flexibility in provider’s busy schedules.
