I always tell my patients "A dermatologist is only as good as their pathologist." Dr. Millns and Dr. Heaphy make me the best dermatologist I could be! I am astounded that they call me regarding ominous results themselves. They always take my calls, are so easy to talk to and always answer my questions.

My diverse practice has seen many rare lesions and diseases. Dr's Millns and Heaphy are so comfortable with rare and odd things. I am confident in all they do for me.

I am a Board Certified Dermatologist in private practice now for eighteen years in St Petersburg, Florida. From the very beginning of my practice, I have been submitting pathologic specimens to Gulf Coast Dermatopathology. I have always found their customer service, speed of processing and, most importantly, the quality of their dermatopathologists to be unsurpassed. The quality of pathologic services is very critical in this specialty since many diagnoses are a combination of clinical and pathologic correlation. Whenever there is a difficult case, I am able to speak directly to the pathologist, who immediately goes back and reviews the slide while we are discussing the case. The qualifications and abilities of their diagnoses, over time, have proven out to be exceptional. It is particularly helpful that their dermatopathologists practice clinical dermatology, as well. I could not be more pleased with their service in any facet. They are an asset to the community and quality of care for all of our patients. If there are any further questions regarding their service, please do not hesitate to contact me.

I have used Gulf Coast Dermatopathology Laboratory as my primary dermatopathology laboratory for the past 15 years. It has happened over time, as we have also used other laboratories and have been able to compare and contrast the quality of their services. Consistency, reliability and professional ism at all levels of interaction with the lab personnel, from the courier to the receptionist, and of course from both Dr. Millns and Dr. Heaphy, have been the norm. I have always been able to reach them with questions about challenging cases, where our conversation turns into a clinical-pathology "mini-grand rounds" reminiscent of an academic center training program. As I tell my patients, I trust the same laboratory for their biopsies that I would trust for my own skin, and that is Gulf Coast Dermatopathology.

Discussing my complex cases with a Dermatologist-Dermatopathologist is extremely important to me. Gulf Coast Dermpath gives me that option. It makes me a better Dermatologist and helps me to provide superior care to my patients. I don’t need to worry about poor quality slide preparation or having my slides shipped to a doctor who is unknown to me. Speedy turnover of tissue report may be nice but quality work with a correct diagnosis is far more important. A differential diagnosis on the non-specific skin biopsies is helpful me as it can guide on further work-up and therapeutic options. Proper care for a patient must include the correct diagnosis and Gulf Coast provides that for me.
