Providing Expert Consultation on Diagnosis and Treatment of Disease
Our highly trained hospital-based pathology physicians provide expertise in comprehensive diagnostic medicine through OhioHealth’s state-of-the-art laboratory technology. Our goal is to provide an accurate diagnosis, communicated effectively and efficiently to the patient’s physician as vital information to the treatment plan.
As a patient, you may never see your OhioHealth Physician Group pathologist, but these expertly train physicians are a vital member of your care team because they provide information about your diagnosis through laboratory medicine. Pathologists use lab tests to identify a disease or to rule out other diseases that could impact your health. So when your primary care physician orders a blood test, the pathologist reviews the results for abnormalities; or when your surgeon performs a biopsy and removes a tissue sample, the pathologist decides if it is cancerous.
We are now offering telehealth appointments by phone or video to patients who do not need to be treated in person. Meet with your provider from the comfort of home using your smartphone, tablet or computer. Learn more.
