Message from the Medical Directors

University of Florida Health Pathology Laboratories has recently experienced significant growth in the services it makes available. For many years, UF Health Pathology Laboratories has been a leading provider of diagnostic and prognostic tests to physicians in North Central Florida. Our faculty and staff are continually recognized for providing high-quality, efficient and reliable service to our physicians and patients. From being a high-quality regional reference laboratory, we have expanded to become the largest academic outreach pathology laboratory in the state of Florida.

We provide comprehensive pathology services to hospitals and physician groups throughout Florida. The services we offer encompass all aspects of anatomic pathology and specialized clinical pathology services. Our specialized anatomic pathology services include such areas as muscle and nerve, renal, and autopsy pathology, as well as oral and podiatric pathology and second opinion consultations. We also offer clinical pathology services in molecular pathology, cytogenetics, coagulation, toxicology and a highly specialized endocrine autoantibody laboratory.

Underscoring our recent growth, we continue to focus on providing the best care to our physicians and their patients. Our academic pathologists and dedicated staff will always be available to discuss any case and test with physicians and patients and help provide a meaningful interpretation of test results.
