What We Do

We are committed to providing doctors with the highest quality, clinicopathologic discussion possible. We recognize that in order to best serve the needs of our clinicians we must work together with them, not just as a lab, but as an extension of their practice. It is our goal to help equip doctors with the results they need to deliver the most effective patient care possible. As pathologists, we recognize that the longest period in a patient’s life is the timeframe between the day he/she has a biopsy, and the day the result arrives.
