Sometimes called the “doctor’s doctor,” pathologists are physicians who use laboratory medicine and technology to identify and diagnose disease. Pathologists are relied on by every medical specialist to provide a range of services, from prenatal testing to cancer screening, to guide the clinical team on how to treat their patients.
