Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Abrishami says...

Dr. Payam Abrishami realizes the fundamental importance of integrating clinical and histological presentations of disease. Dermatopathology may be his passion, but he views himself as a clinician first. He always makes time to answer all questions, but it’s how he answers them that is most impressive. His effortless explanation on any topic is valuable in connecting with him. Following his training, he accepted a position as Assistant Chief of Dermatopathology at UCLA. As a full time professor in the departments of dermatology and pathology, he was active in training residents and fellows, unifying the programs and enjoyed bringing a new style and approach to the University – drawing on his diverse background and training. He remains on the part time faculty of the University and lectures regulary at UCLA, Harbor and in Academy meetings.
