Mission Pathology Consultants provides full service dermatopathology consultations. A board-certified dermatopathologist is on staff, Dr. David Martin-Reay.

Originally trained in pathology at Harvard and Northwestern Universities, Dr. Martin-Reay received his dermatopathology training with Dr. A. Bernard Ackerman at the Ackerman Academy of Dermatology/Columbia University in New York City. The late Dr. Ackerman was world famous and the author of countless books, monographs and papers in dermatopathology. Dr. Martin-Reay had the honor of being selected by Dr. Ackerman as an Associate at the Ackerman Academy, where he honed his skills for a further two years. As a member of the Cottage Hospital staff, Dr. Martin-Reay regularly attends and presents at the weekly Santa Barbara dermatopathology slide review conference.

Mission Pathology Consultants can provide a full complement of special studies, including immunohistochemistry for diagnosis. Furthermore, because of the wide range of sub-specialists in the group, consultation can be easily sought in selected cases, for example, lymphomas from one of our two hematopathologists. We can also facilitate additional special testing such as direct immunofluorescence.
