Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
Appropriate health care and management depends on an accurate and timely diagnosis. As a pathologist, I examine cells and tissues to make diagnoses, particularly cancer and other malignancies. Patients do not often see what pathologists do behind the scenes, but we are intimately involved with your health care, usually as consultants to other physicians. I specialize in cytopathology, which includes the examination of Pap tests, exfoliated fluid samples, and small biopsies. If you are already being seen or treated at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, then you may see my name or another pathologist's name on your pathology reports. Our department also offers consultative services for slide/case review to outside pathologists, referring clinicians, and patients who are seeking specialized expertise or a second opinion.
