Experience, Compassion and Accessibility
American Dermatopathology Laboratory is the creative vision of Dr. H. Nicholas Shamma. We are a comprehensive, CLIA certified and independent laboratory, with a nationwide reach. As a physician owned lab focused on providing clinicians and their patients with reliable diagnoses of skin biopsies, we use state of the art processes and a high standard of care. We are excited about this endeavor. We practice dermatopathology backed by experience, individualized service/support and above all kindness and compassion.
Clinicians sending to our lab expect an experienced dermatopathologist who truly believes that behind each skin biopsy there is a human being. The patient is not just a case number, a billable code or a dollar sign. We care more about how well we do and not about how many biopsies we interpret or income we generate. Our primary focus is to continue the best care possible of your patients’ skin biopsy. In order to make this happen, we provide you with an experienced dermatopathologist and excellent service.
At American Dermpath Lab, the biopsy is cared for by a team of laboratorians with combined experience of more than 80 years. Personally, Dr. Shamma has diagnosed over one million skin biopsies in his career. He has published in peer reviewed journals, lectured at the national level and taught many dermatology residents and has seen over 28 residents successfully graduate from Wright State University’s dermatology department. Dr. Shamma and his team are available to personally discuss your patients’ biopsies by phone. We offer you electronic accessibility to your patients’ results by mail, fax and securely from our website (www.AmericanDermpath.com). We have the capacity to interface with your EMR through HIPPA compliant HL-7 interface. We also have the ability to extract patient demographics and insurance information from your EMR, billing or registration software and thus eliminate handwriting on biopsy order forms as a result of partnering with LK Connect. Lastly, we can also do remote printing if desired. As part of our service, we offer you biopsy supplies and mailing options including local courier pick-up and UPS/FedEx mailing.
