Request a Consultation

We are dedicated to providing expert consultation or second opinion on slides originally prepared and diagnosed elsewhere. Our consultation expertise includes hair and nail biopsies, complex inflammatory and lymphoproliferative skin diseases and melanocytic lesions.

When we receive your consultation requests, our dermatopathologists will study and discuss your slides. In complex cases, internal consultation may be initiated with our hematopathology or soft tissue pathology colleagues. In most cases, we will issue a report with our consensus diagnosis within 48 to 72 hours. A copy of our report will be also sent to the pathologist who provided the original diagnosis on your case.

Interested in sending us a case? There’s no need to set up an account with us. Simply print and fill out our Consult Request Form (PDF) and send us your slides and/or blocks along with the completed form and the initial pathology report. Detailed shipping instructions are included on the requisition form.

Please note that we provide complimentary supplies as well as overnight shipping. Our Center accepts most insurance plans so there is little or no cost to your patients.
