Kessel Dermatology is very proud and fortunate to have its own on-site dermatopathology laboratory, which enables our patients to get faster, more reliable answers to the most important questions quickly and efficiently.
Most dermatology practices must send out their results to a third party and await remote administrative and laboratory processing in addition to physician review, prior to results becoming available. If there is a question about that diagnosis, this question is also associated with a turn around time. We are one of very few dermatology offices in the state of New Jersey with the ability to process results rapidly on site, and in some cases, the same day if necessary. This also allows your dermatologist to personally review your results in the laboratory when a diagnosis is in question, which leads to greatly enhanced efficiency and continuity of patient care.
Our laboratory also enables same day frozen tissue processing utilized in Mohs Surgery, and advanced immunohistochemical analysis, a technique that greatly enhances the diagnostic capability of the pathologist in reviewing your diagnosis.
