Before a disease is treated, it must be diagnosed. Diagnosis through tissues and cells, known as pathology, is a highly scientific and complicated process.
Experienced Clinical Pathologists
At Athens Regional, we rely on four board-certified anatomic and clinical pathologists with extensive experience to type, grade and stage tumors.
If an abnormality is detected, this is the team to analyze it. Each of our pathologists has additional extensive training in a specialized field of pathology that is important to cancer screening and diagnosis.
Our pathology department has is dedicated to collaboration. Each day, the pathologists meet to review and analyze cases together. Each brings an expert background to the table, which means our patients receive a diagnosis that's been reviewed by numerous people of the highest caliber.
Our pathologists work together with one goal in mind: The most accurate diagnosis. For every patient. Every day.
It's that kind of dedication that earned Athens Regional accreditation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
