Dermatopathology is the evaluation of skin biopsies or samples of skin. Dermatopathology developed as a field because dermatologists generate many skin biopsies, requiring an expertise in interpretation. Biopsies are performed to help diagnose unusual growths or rashes.

We are proud to have an in-house Dermatopathologist and full lab here at Bellaire Dermatology. Dermatopathology is the evaluation of skin biopsies or samples of skin. Our dermatopathologist, Dr. Howard Gerber, is board certified in dermatology and dermatopathology. Dr. Gerber has practiced in the field of dermatopathology for more than fifteen years and provides consultative services for various medical groups in the Houston area.


Our goal of expedited services and results ensures excellent patient care and timely treatment. An early diagnosis of skin cancer has led to final treatment within twenty-four hours on occasion. Complex cases are reviewed by both the treating dermatologist and the dermatopathologist, utilizing the complementary skills and training of both physicians.


"These guys hung the moon. They actually care! Dr. Teller takes his time & his team has an eye for precision, they work alongside him for a great result that is just perfect for me. I’ve been coming for so long for this very reason. I would just never not. They are very extensive. I can’t thank them enough!"
