Hematopathology Services

Aurora Diagnostics is dedicated to providing exceptional laboratory services to referring hematologists/oncologists and their patients. This is achieved through community-based physician practices and laboratories that feature experienced, board-certified hematopathologists, comprehensive test menus, and highly personalized services.

As physicians’ physicians, we are committed to your patients’ care by providing diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic information quickly and accurately. Emphasis is placed on cost-effective, diagnostic assessments with appropriate utilization of specialized testing, including immunohistochemistry (IHC), four-color flow cytometry, cytogenetics, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), and molecular diagnostic studies. These specialized tests are integrated with clinical and morphologic assessments in the final diagnostic interpretations.

Our hematopathologists are members of the local medical communities they serve, i.e., they are physicians you personally know and with whom you can immediately confer. Our personalized approach means that you experience the highest quality, customized, hematopathology services available in your local medical community. Our expertise in integrating relevant technologies ensures that you receive the very best diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic information required to optimize patient care.

Aurora Diagnostics offers a comprehensive test menu, ensuring that you and your patients have access to the latest and most relevant testing array. Our physicians routinely integrate the diagnostic tools at their disposal in order to provide accurate and definitive diagnostic services for hematomalignancies (cancers of the blood).
