About Paul Bogner


My focus is the laboratory diagnosis of skin disease, including skin cancer, rashes, and other conditions that can affect the skin. Proper pathologic diagnosis of the problem is often critical to getting the right treatment.

The Roswell Park Dermatopathology service reviews and diagnoses biopsies and other skin specimens from Roswell Park patients, patients in the WNY community and patients referred from elsewhere for a second diagnostic opinion.
