What is a Pathologist?

A pathologist is a physician with a specialty training in tissue diagnosis and laboratory medicine. If you have tissues or fluids removed during a hospital visit, a pathologist will examine your specimen and provide a diagnosis to your physician. When you have blood drawn for laboratory work, a pathologist oversees the testing and is available for consultation if necessary. Pathologists assist your doctor in making a diagnosis about your health or any medical problems you have.

It is important to us to be part of the communities we serve; our pathologists live and work in Tulsa, Bartlesville, and Ponca City, Oklahoma as well as Pittsburg, Kansas.

Serving the community does not end with our work in the laboratory.
