What is included in the second opinion consultation?

Cleveland Clinic's subspecialty approach to pathology ensures that your specimen, when submitted to Cleveland Clinic, is only evaluated by pathologists who have a high level of experience and expertise in a specific field, such as breast, gastrointestinal, gynecologic, lung, Hematopathology, and others. In addition, each subspecialty service conducts daily conferences to review and get consensus among experts on unique and challenging cases.
