Why Choose Us

MPL combines cutting-edge diagnostics to provide comprehensive service with a 24-48 hour turnaround. We are flexible in response to our local medical community’s needs.

Thorough Diagnosis

Our Pathologist is board certified in anatomic pathology by the American Board of Pathology. If faced with a particularly rare or difficult diagnostic dilemma, we readily seek outside consultation for a second opinion.

Local, Personalized Service

Physicians are encouraged to call or visit our lab to discuss any case directly with our pathologist. If your practice prefers a daily courier pickup and hand-delivered reports, we can accommodate you.
