Test Requisition Hematopathology Sample Report

Stanford Hematopathology consultants are committed to providing the highest quality of care and delivering timely diagnoses for your cases. Members of our staff have participated in setting worldwide standards for hematopathology diagnoses, and have extensive clinical experience in reviewing challenging hematopathology cases.

Comprehensive Consultation:

A Stanford consult will review all submitted material, generate a differential diagnosis, and order testing appropriate for that case. This eliminates unnecessary laboratory testing and tailors testing appropriate for your patient’s diagnosis and subsequent treatment.

Traditional Consultation:

Clinician orders laboratory testing to be performed on submitted specimens.
