Clinical Pathology Consultations

The Clinical Pathology Laboratories, unless specifically stated under the description of each laboratory, accepts consultations in all areas of clinical pathology for second opinions on the following:

  • Complex testing (e.g., flow cytometry, hemoglobin electrophoresis, antimicrobial resistance, etc)
  • Referral for patients for special procedures (i.e. transfusion medicine in concert with primary medical care team)
  • For general assistance with the performance and interpretation of all laboratory testing

For each laboratory, there is a clinical pathology resident on call who should be contacted directly via the Partners Paging system for inquiries about consultations and how to send materials or refer patients.


For over a century, a leader in patient care, medical education and research, with expertise in virtually every specialty of medicine and surgery.
