Interactive Diagnostics

We believe in Interactive Diagnostics as a more cost-effective means of offering quality laboratory medicine and patient care. This system allows our pathologists to review all relevant patient data associated with the medical need for each laboratory test before proceeding with further testing. If a discrepancy is detected, we can contact you to verify the test or recommend alternate testing. For all complex or urgent cases, our evaluating pathologist will contact you to discuss the case in detail.  Diagnostics with an interactive approach makes Yellowstone Pathology Institute the preferred choice of hundreds of practicing physicians.
