Why Choose Vista Pathology?

Local. Expertise.

You don’t have to sacrifice the benefits of local service for cutting-edge diagnostics.

The Expertise Part:

Our pathologists are not only fully certified in anatomic and clinical pathology, but also represent seven board-certified subspecialties of pathology: dermatopathology, hematopathology, cytopathology, neuropathology, clinical chemistry, microbiology, breast pathology, and forensic pathology. In our on-site lab, we perform a wider array of immunohistochemical and in situ hybridization testing than many academic medical centers. New cancer diagnoses or other clinical conditions with grave clinical consequences are reviewed often by at least two pathologists. And if we are faced with a particularly rare or difficult diagnostic dilemma, we readily seek outside consultation from experts at such institutions as Stanford University Medical Center, UC San Francisco, University of Washington Medical Center, the Harvard-associated hospitals, and the Cleveland Clinic, among others.

The Local Part:

We’re happy to sit down with you at the microscope, one on one, and review a case so that you fully understand our diagnostic reasoning. One of us is just a phone call away to field your questions any day, any hour. Chances are we have your patient’s prior biopsies, too, which we routinely review for comparison and correlation. We’re big enough to provide comprehensive service and small enough to remain flexible in response to our local medical community’s needs. You just won’t find that kind of service from a national lab.
