When you visited a doctor or had and operation, your doctor took a specimen (biopsy, tissue sample or cell smear) from you. Your doctor/specialist then sent the specimen to JDW Pathology for analysis. JDW Pathology deals with the examination of body tissues and fluids by microscopy and laboratory testing in order to provide your doctor with information needed for diagnosis and treatment. The bill you receive from JDW Pathology could be for one of the following:
The examination of your tissue – a biopsy or surgical specimen submitted to us by your doctor.
The examination of a cytology sample – often a pap test or fine needle aspiration.
A report of the findings of the examinations will have been sent to your doctor/specialist.
