Errors: Pathology diagnosis is a subjective cognitive process. A mystic assumption
prevails among some clinicians and laymen who believe that “the
pathologist, given only a piece of a patient’s tissue, has all

No Guarantee: Advanced Pathology Laboratory agrees to provide
conscientious, competent, and diligent services and at all times
will seek to achieve reasonable degree of accuracy. However, because
of the overall uncertainty of medical diagnoses, the evolving
interpretation and changes in medical science, and many other
factors, the pathologist cannot and do not warrant, predict, or
guarantee results or the outcomes of the case.
It is necessary to correlate all pathology diagnoses with your clinical findings and your expectations. In case of discrepancy, please notify the pathologist.
