Pathology and Laboratory Medicine

Information Regarding Consultation Services

Should you need a second opinion regarding a tissue diagnosis made on you at another medical center, such a request is customarily made through your primary health care provider. In this case, your physician can request that tissue sections prepared at another institution are reviewed by one of our pathologists for a second opinion.

Your involvement in the process will require that you sign a consent form for the release of your histologic sections, pathology reports, and copies of your clinical imaging studies (X-rays, CT scans, MRI’s etc.) to one of the pathologists in our department. A written report will be sent to your referring physician after the case has been thoroughly evaluated. Since, as in any physician service, a bill is sent for consultative professional services, if you have medical insurance information, please send this with the consultation materials.
