November 2, 2020

Silver Spring, Maryland – U.S. Dermatology Partners is excited to welcome Board-Certified Dermatologist and Fellowship-Trained Dermatopathologist, Dr. David Terrano. Dr. Terrano will work at Bethesda Dermatopathology Lab.

Dr. Terrano received his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in 2011. His research focused on the molecular mechanisms of tumor cell death and he published several papers on the work and received external funding from the Department of Defense while a graduate student. He completed his anatomic and clinical pathology training at Columbia University Medical Center, followed by an intensive oncologic pathology fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and a Dermatopathology fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital. After training, Dr. Terrano quickly became the Medical Director at the largest independent Dermatopathology laboratory in Arizona, before joining BDL.

Well versed in the clinical and pathologic basis of skin disease, Dr. Terrano maintains a strong interest in the cutting edge molecular diagnostic techniques for cutaneous neoplasms, particularly rare melanocytic tumors. He is also a dedicated laboratory director who ensures that laboratory operations deliver the highest quality and most efficient diagnostic results. He enjoys creating strong relationships with Dermatologists, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners to provide patients with the best diagnosis and treatment.

Away from work, Dr. Terrano enjoys spending time with his wife and son, traveling, exercising outdoors, and, as a guitar enthusiast, learning to play songs by his favorite musicians.
