  • Anatomic Pathology & Clinical Pathology

    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.

Worst Billing for United Health care

These people charge twice for the pathology services. One by the alexandria hospital and one by the centreville office. My insurance company has said that they cannot bill it twice.. The clerk gives a very rude answer if you want to believe the insurance company believe them, but you need to pay the bill and they would not work with the insurance company to sort it out, she hangs the phone on me, Whoever has a united health care as there insurance provider you should not visit these people.
