Dermatopathology Services

Dr. Allison Readinger is a board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist. This means she not only sees patients in the clinic but also reads skin biopsies under the microscope. She dedicates time to both dermatology and dermatopathology because she feels that time spent at each of these pursuits makes her better at the other.

“When seeing a patient in the clinic who needs a biopsy, I often think about what I or a colleague could later be looking at under the microscope when that biopsy comes into the lab. It is essential to think about the way a rash or lesion looks under the microscope to determine the best biopsy technique or even the best place to take the biopsy on the skin. Working with the other dermatologists or physician’s assistants to make sure that everyone communicates effectively about where and how the biopsy was taken or if the whole lesion or part of lesion was taken off are details not to be missed. “

Dr. Readinger teaches dermatopathology to residents at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas each week and attends the twice monthly skin tumor conference at that institution. “One of the best aspects of being part of such a wonderful institution is that difficult or interesting cases are shared amongst colleagues. We help each other to take the best care of our patients and continue to educate ourselves at the same time.”

All dermatopathology services provided by Dr. Readinger are through Pathologists’ Biomedical Laboratories at Baylor University Medical Center. A full array of special stains, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, and molecular tests are available.
