Our experienced team of pathologists examine and assess your lab samples to help your healthcare provider make a diagnosis and guide treatment. Lab samples, also known as biological specimens, are tissues or bodily fluids gathered during a medical appointment or lab visit. We care for patients like you behind the scenes in our laboratories and are an important member of your healthcare team.
We are seeking to understand the cause, nature and effects of disease on the body. We provide routine surgical pathology to identify diseases such as blood disorders, infectious diseases and cancer. Providers also use our services to monitor the health of patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. We offer more complex DNA and RNA sequencing to detect disease variants or mutations to better diagnosis, assist with therapeutic decision and inform patients. Our consult service offers providers second opinions or rereads of results to further ensure lab results are processed and interpreted correctly.
