About

Our pathologists consistently deliver accurate diagnoses while investing in authentic relationships with clients. We believe that communication, transparency, and integrity are key components of an excellent diagnostic service; we strive to embody these values while facilitating integrative patient care.

Services

At CTA Pathology, we offer a broad range of dermatopathology services oriented towards supporting patient care. In addition to providing traditional immunohistochemical staining and diagnostic reports for skin biopsies, we also offer direct immunofluorescence (DIF) for vasculitis, autoimmune bullous and connective tissue disorders as well as polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing for nail diseases.
