It is our goal to provide timely, accurate, and clinically relevant diagnoses. More than 95% of cases are completed the day of receipt, using the original slides provided. The referring pathologist receives a verbal report followed by a FAX; in the vast majority of cases, this occurs the day the cases are received. Materials are returned by First Class mail with delivery confirmation, usually within a week.
Submitting a Consult
Samples for diagnosis may be sent by express delivery service or regular mail. In addition to the glass slides, please include completed or pending surgical pathology reports(including gross description). A paraffin tissue block is not necessary for most cases, but for some cases we may request that you send the block after initial review. More than 95% of our cases are diagnosed from the original slides.
Slides are returned by First Class mail unless other arrangements are made.
If patient billing information is provided, we will bill patient insurance. If you prefer that you or your institution is billed, we can create a client bill.
