BMP is committed to providing patients with comprehensive, cost-efficient, and convenient Pathology Services.

Comprehensive Diagnosis of Illnesses and Diseases

Pathologists support all facets of healthcare, from giving guidance to doctors on the optimal method to treat common diseases, to using the latest modern genetic technologies to treat patients with a variety of medical conditions.

BMP’s Pathology Specialists work closely with our in-house Physicians and other health care practitioners in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of their patients and provide a professional resource for questions regarding patient biopsies.

We perform both clinical and anatomic pathology to diagnose and characterize disease by examining biopsies or bodily fluids. Our pathology experts can also interpret all medical laboratory tests in order to prevent illness or to monitor a patient’s chronic conditions.
