Dr. Imran Shahab has the following 2 specialties
A pathologist is a physician who specializes in the causes and paths taken by different diseases in order to accurately diagnose an illness.
Pathologists diagnose and determine the characteristics of a disease through the study of biopsies of diseased tissue or of bodily fluids. For example, a pathologist will look at a biopsy of a skin lesion in order to diagnose or rule out skin cancer. A pathologist will also look at a Pap smear in order to check for a gynecological cancer like cancer of the uterus.
In addition to determining the cause and development of a disease, these specialists also study the changes a disease makes to a body and the consequences of those structural changes.
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

This doctor contracts with a disorganized billing service. We just received a bill from a collection agency for $21.00 for pathology performed at a surgery, although we had never received a bill before. When I called, his company said they had sent invoices, but would not allow the US Postal service to forward mail to the new address (while most companies do). Ironically, the collection agency does allow the US Postal service to forward mail to the correct address. If one would like to get paid, they should allow the US Postal service to forward mail to the new address; that is why people fill out the form at the US Postal Service to have mail forwarded. How many accounts are being turned over to a collection agency because of a bad policy within his own billing office? It is infuriating to have a $21.00 bill turned over to an agency when we paid thousands more for this same surgery.
