Professional Pathologist Coverage:
Our laboratory is open Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.  We have an on-call pathologist available seven days a week for after hours and weekends.  Our pathology staff, both anatomic and clinically certified, can assist with anything from an initial gross exam to final diagnosis, consultation or follow-up, to special stain requests.

Standard Gross and Microscopic Exams:
All specimens are examined and slides prepared at our new Maplewood laboratory by our certified P.A. and histotechnology staff.

Diagnosis:
Specimens arriving in our laboratory before 3 p.m. are processed on the same day they are received.  Microscopic diagnoses are made and reported on the day following receipt of specimen.

Telephone Diagnoses:
At the request of any physician or at CRPL’s discretion some diagnoses may be telephoned for further discussion after the diagnosis is made.

Reporting:
Our pathology reports may be accessed via internet reporting upon completion, autofaxed and if requested, hard copies delivered via courier or mail.
