Dr. Dy is both a dermatopathologist and a clinician, which means that she performs more than just clinical encounters. As a dermatopathologist, Dr. Dy examines tissue at the microscopic level; thus, she can better correlate conditions at that level with those at the clinical level. This layered, deeper understanding of dermatology leads to a more accurate diagnosis and more comprehensive care for her patients.
