Beaird Dermatology Expands Their Expert Team

Beaird Dermatology Staff Expansion

Hoffman Estates, IL • February 18, 2020 – Beaird Dermatology, a leading Chicagoland dermatology practice, is pleased to announce the addition of new team members as a part of an ongoing expansion plan. The additions allow patients to save time and money by seeing a provider with virtually no wait time, by getting accurate lab results quickly, and by having a prescription filled – all before leaving the building.

Beaird Dermatology's dermatopathologist, Dr. Seema Apichai, draws on her extensive dermapathology experience to provide accurate diagnoses, helping clinicians identify the best course of treatment for patients. Dr. Apichai utilizes the patient's clinical history, description of symptoms, and clinical pictures to develop clear-cut and precise pathology reports for each individual. Dr. Apichai strongly believes in a collaborative team approach to patient care and works closely with the team to discuss complex cases and ensure a precise diagnosis.

Beaird Dermatology's certified pharmacy technician helps manage the on-site prescription service. The role supports patients by answering questions, verifying insurance coverage of medications and acquiring authorizations for medications. They will even identify alternative medications, when needed, to help patients save money. This integrated service allows patients to get diagnosed, treated, and walk out the door with medications in hand.

The in-house dermapathology laboratory has histology technicians working under the tutelage of our dermatopathologist, Dr. Seema Apichai. They are responsible for embedding, cutting, and processing all tissue specimens taken from biopsies by the team's expert providers. When necessary, they perform special staining requested by the Dr. Apichai for further testing to ensure the proper diagnosis for the patient.

The newest member to the Beaird Dermatology family is the grossing technician, who completes the first step in the dermapathology process. They are responsible for grossing specimens for the histology tech to finish processing. They identify features including the shape and type of the specimen, number of pieces, dimensions, and configuration – an important step in pathology slide preparation.

Beaird Dermatology's team of experts are focused on the health and treatment of skin as a part of an overall wellness plan. The continued expansion and growth of the practice provides patients with access to advanced dermatology care and an efficient 5-star experience.  


Since opening its doors in 2016, Beaird Dermatology has passionately pursued its mission to provide the highest standard of care in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. The family-owned practice offers on-time appointments, convenient extended hours, and a state-of-the-art facility in Hoffman Estates, IL, complete with an onsite lab and onsite prescription service.
