ABOUT OUR SERVICES
The pathologic examination of the specimen is performed by an experienced board-certified dermatopathologist / anatomic & clinical pathologist who is a Fellow of The American Society of Dermatopathology and the College of American Pathologists. We also specialize in examination of nails for onychomycosis.
TOLL-FREE numbers are provided on the masthead of our pathology reports for 24 hour-a-day, 7 day-a-week access to the pathologist.
Supplies for specimen transport are provided at no charge.
We provide customized preprinted requisitions.
The pathology report is faxed as soon as completed AND the chart copy mailed the day of sign out, if you desire a second copy other than the fax.
The large majority of specimens received by 3:30 pm will have results faxed the following morning / early afternoon.
Specimens may be shipped to us using a variety of prepaid methods, which we will discuss and customize for the client. The method depends upon location, volume of cases, and turnaround time requirements, which may utilize prepaid first class mail, FedEx, or courier options.
For Topeka clients, we will pick up your specimens on a daily schedule or as otherwise requested.
