Founded by Dr. Clay J. Cockerell, former president of the American Academy of Dermatology and internationally recognized dermatologist and dermatopathologist, Cockerell Dermatopathology offers diagnostic excellence and unparalleled service in the evaluation of dermatologic disorders ranging from the routine to the most difficult cases. To best service our current and future referring physicians, Dr. Cockerell invested for the future by upgrading every facet of the practice. This includes advanced automation within the laboratory, which will eliminate manual error points, produce higher quality slides to read and improve turnaround time on routine cases. Significant upgrades were also made to the laboratory information system, which will allow us to quickly deploy order and results connectivity solutions and improve the ability to produce referring physician diagnostic data that is often required by state cancer registrars. From an educational standpoint, the reading room houses a 13-headed microscope for hands-on training and the lecture-style conference room will be used to host CME-type events.

Cockerell Dermatopathology is open to accept new referrals and recently moved into our new state-of-the-art laboratory.

Cockerell Dermatopathology serves more than 1,300 doctors from across Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, the United States and abroad. With an accessible team of board-certified dermatopathologists, Cockerell Dermatopathology’s core focus is quickly delivering definitive diagnoses all while providing unparalleled support services.
