Educational outreach. IRON SHARPENS IRON.

Dr. Cockerell discuses the full gamut of infectious diseases seen in dermatopathology.

Cockerell Dermatopathology is committed to continuing to provide uninterrupted service to your patients during this worldwide disruption caused by COVID-19. All of our employees are exercising safe hygiene measures and implementing social distancing so that we remain healthy and are able to perform our duties. In the event that we do experience employees with illness, we have implemented contingency plans so that we will be able to continue providing diagnoses in a timely manner. As a laboratory, we do not have extensive contact with the public so that the number of exposures to potentially infected individuals is lower than other businesses where there is greater social interaction which lowers our vulnerability to COVID-19.

We are happy to answer any questions or address any concerns and if we can be of service to your practice in other ways during this time of crisis, please contact us.
