    What We Do

    Pathologists are physicians who specialize in diagnosing and monitoring disease based on the microscopic analysis of tissues, cells and bodily fluids. All our pathologists are board certified in anatomic and/or clinical pathology; members of the team are also certified in subspecialties, including dermatopathology and cytopathology. Although they often work behind the scenes, pathologists are a critical part of the healthcare team.

     

    Services We Perform

    Our pathologists use WESTMED Medical Group’s full-service clinical and anatomic pathology laboratories to perform tests related to numerous illnesses, including cancer, heart and blood conditions, liver disease, endocrine disorders and infectious diseases. Our specialists’ areas of expertise include:

     

    • Fine-needle aspiration of tumors
    • Preparation and interpretation of Pap tests
    • Diagnosis and monitoring of skin diseases
    • The use of special stains and techniques to diagnose HPV, including strains that may be associated with increased risk of cervical cancer
    • Advanced testing for sexually transmitted diseases
