Our Story

In 2006, Dr. Curtis Thompson created CTA Pathology to offer his expertise in nail, hair, and skin pathology to the Portland Metropolitan area. As his practice quickly grew in popularity among the medical professionals in Oregon, the first addition to the CTA team would take place as Dr. Jessica Spies joined in the spring of 2007. As the years passed, we continued to offer exceptional diagnostic services with great success and in the fall of 2017, Dr. Stephen Pool joined us. Two years later in the fall of 2019, we expanded to Michigan including the addition of Drs. Brian Schapiro, Jessica Ghaferi, & James Ramirez. In 2021, we took our talents to Colorado and acquired another asset for our team, Dr. Ingerlisa Mattoch. Our most recent addition to the team occurred in the summer of 2021 as Dr. Tyler Menge joined our Michigan-based providers. Today, all eight of our extraordinary dermatopathologists take pride in offering their top-tier professional services to the clients and patients of Oregon, Michigan, & Colorado.
