Request a Slide Consultation and Second Opinion from Mihm Cutaneous Pathology Service

Dermatologists, dermatopathologists, patients, and/or concerned parents often send their slides to MCPCS for a second or even third opinion on complex cases. As senior consultant in dermatology and dermatopathology, Dr. Piris’ diagnosis and recommendations for treatment are often determining factors leading to a comprehensive management of difficult entities.

Interested in sending us a case?

Slides should be sent to MCPCS at the address below with a cover letter (or attached consultation form), accompanying report and billing information. Upon careful review of each case, a consultation report is issued within 48-72 hours. This report will contain Dr. Piris’ diagnosis and, when necessary, treatment and patient management recommendations.

If possible, to avoid illegible handwriting, please complete the fields of this form online, print and mail with consultation.
