Dermatopathology Services at Mount Sinai
From its inception in 1986, the Dermatopathology Division at The Mount Sinai Hospital has built one of the most advanced services in the region. We deliver timely and accurate interpretation of more than 50,000 specimens a year to Mount Sinai Health System physicians, as well as to dermatologists throughout the tri-state area and beyond, in an efficient and accommodating manner.
Under the leadership of Robert Phelps, MD and George Niedt, MD, the Dermatopathology Division at The Mount Sinai Hospital has acquired vast experience in examining all types of specimens, both common and rare. The Division continues to develop and adopt the latest techniques to deliver the most detailed and accurate interpretation of each specimen.
We are the primary referral source for specimens from Mount Sinai’s dermatologic community, which includes scores of Mount Sinai Health System physicians, as well as dermatologists practicing across New York City
