The services provided by the faculty members of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center are essential for optimal patient care. An accurate diagnosis is crucial for patients to receive the most effective therapies. The expertise of our internationally recognized pathologists — most of whom have subspecialty training — ensures the greatest chance of an accurate diagnosis and solid footing on that first critical step on a patient's journey. Our services are also widely employed to monitor patients' response to therapy and to predict prognosis.
Prominent among our faculty are several authorities in the areas of hematopathology, dermatopathology, nearly all surgical pathology subspecialties, and laboratory medicine. Building on their expertise, we have developed a nationwide diagnostic and patient management consultation service in support of our reference laboratory services. We also provide our expertise internally to support Weill Cornell.
