What is Pathology?
Pathologists help doctors diagnose diseases and determine treatment recommendations by examining samples of fluids, blood, biopsies, and other specimens. In addition to examining and diagnosing surgical specimens, the pathologists supervise laboratory technicians, oversee the Blood Bank, ensure the quality and excellence of the tests performed and reported, and provide ongoing education to the medical staff.
Our pathologists have examined thousands of breast, cervical, prostate, gastric and colorectal cancers, lymphomas, melanomas and other skin cancers. Consultations are provided for:
- Skin Lesions
- Prostate Cancers
- Breast Cancers
- Gynecology Cases
- Gastrointestinal/Colorectal Cases
- Bone Marrows
- Fine-needle Aspirations
- Gynecologic Cytology (Pap smears)
