OU's Oral Pathologists have provided practitioners with the highest quality of service since 1972. The service receives specimens from all over the United States.
A written pathology report is faxed within 24 hours of receipt for most specimens and a telephone report is made for all malignancies and serious disorders. We are available by phone if you wish to discuss the diagnosis of a case with us. A wide range of immunohistochemical studies are available for supplemental diagnosis of problematic cases.
The Oral & Maxillofacial pathology staff is dedicated to the delivery of timely (usually 24 hours) and accurate diagnostic reports to clinicians. Quality of care is the first priority of this contributor-oriented service.
