“I enjoy the attention to detail and the clarification of disease process
that the University of Wisconsin Eye Pathology Laboratory brings to my
cases. The prompt return of an accurate pathologic diagnosis has
helped on many cases where the clinical diagnosis was not obvious. The
staff at UW Eye Pathology Lab is always willing to take the time to
personally discuss cases. Their knowledge of clinical ophthalmology
maximizes the usefulness of obtaining pathology consultation for my
diagnostic dilemmas.”
