Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
Over three million laboratory tests are performed annually using state-of-the-art facilities and techniques such as robotic automation. Weill Cornell Medicine's New York City-based Pathology provides microscopic examinations of tissue samples, blood tests, drug monitoring, viral studies, body fluid analyses, and other tests, with a wide range of subspecialty areas. The specialties include hematopathology, breast pathology, dermatopathology, cytopathology and aspiration biopsy, renal pathology, special hematology and coagulation tests, molecular pathology, and perinatal and pediatric pathology.
More than sixty MD and PhD scientists staff the pathology laboratories. All are full-time, board-certified faculty at Weill Cornell Medical College with expertise in a wide range of pathology subspecialties. Building on their expertise, we have developed a nation-wide diagnostic and patient management consultation service.
"Dr Port is an incredible surgeon, very thorough on folliw up and has great office staff. I truly hope to never need him again but I highly recommend Dr Port and Weill Cornell!"
"It has been a long time since I met a true professional physician like Dr. Altorki. Kind caring and listens to all your questions and concerns. Altorki see’s into his patient’s needs and makes sure they receive the right care to the nth degree. I feel very fortunate to meet and be seen by him."
"Dr. Shostak helped me in the ER and in my subsequent 5 day stay at Weill Cornell treating a lung infection. He was a consummate professional, made me feel very comfortable by explaining in detail at every step what they were doing to treat me and why and helping me to understand my progress along the way. I can’t say enough positive things about the care he provided and the team of nurses and techs that supported him. 5 stars isn’t enough!"
