After Receiving Your Order
Simply send your biopsy and/or cytology specimen in the enclosed pre-paid FedEx envelope. We will provide soft and hard tissue analysis following:
- gross examination with/without decalcification
- routine hematoxylin and eosin stains
- special studies, when indicated, including immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, and/or in situ hybridization
Twenty-four hours after we have received the specimen, we will send by fax and/or mail the patient’s pathology report to include in the patient’s medical record. This report includes photomicrographic imaging, gross and microscopic descriptions, final diagnosis, and corresponding current ICD codes for insurance claims.
We will contact you to discuss challenging diagnoses and their implications on patient management.

We also offer consultative opinions based on histories, clinical photographs, or radiographs, including options for management of oral disease. These services are complimentary for our regular biopsy service clients.
For patients with oral mucosal disease that would benefit from an in-person evaluation, we are happy to see oral pathology patients in our clinical practice at Tufts University on the 6th floor of the School of Dental Medicine. Appointments may be scheduled by calling 617-636-3932 for an appointment.
