Be wary of 2 comments written below the report-
We Are Not Legally Responsible & Co-relate Clinically ( means that the treating doctor is responsible!)
We As Doctors Have to do 'Window' Shopping to Search the Best Pathologist in our areas & Believe Me that It is Worth the effort.
There are Good Pathologists who do Not Shy Away from signing & putting a stamp with registration number on reports,on samples sent to their well equipped labs. more
I once called a representative of a very reputed national pathlab chain for sample collection and after meeting me the representative told me that he has quit the chain and that he can get my sample tested from another lab at half the rate. I strictly told him no and approached the helpline number of the pathlab and asked them to send a representative so that I am not duped.
