Pathology Team

Our pathologists take great pride in meeting your individual consultation needs by providing direct interaction with you and/or the referring physician. Sign out conferences are held daily to ensure that multiple Board Certified Pathologists and PhDs collectively discern the findings, achieve a consensus on the diagnosis, and/or assess the need for additional testing when appropriate. We also recognize the urgency in treatment required on many cases which is why we offer preliminary notifications as available and when requested as well as 24 hour coverage.

Our Anatomic and Clinical Laboratories are CAP, AABB, FDA, and JCAHO accredited with all technical personnel being appropriately licensed both at the national and state level. Additionally, many technical personnel also possess a specialist license in their area of expertise. Our technical staff is trained in handling all accounts, regardless of size, in an individualized manner to insure that customer specifications are continuously achieved.

We at LSU Health Shreveport Pathology Outreach Services believe that our highest priority is customer satisfaction and the development of lasting relationships built on trust and friendship. Each request is processed like it belongs to one of our own family members with our philosophy being “nothing but our very best is acceptable”.

If you have any questions or require additional information, please call or e-mail us. We continuously expand our test menu, so don’t hesitate to inquire about a test not listed on our website.

We look forward to working with you to provide your customers with the highest quality, personalized service available in pathology outreach and to developing a lasting relationship built on professionalism, trust, and friendship.
