Slide Consultation / Second Opinion
UCSF Dermatopathology Service
1701 Divisadero Street, Suite 280
San Francisco, CA 94115
Physicians and other dermatopathologists often send their slides to UCSF Dermatopathology Service to request a consultation or second opinion on their complex cases. Occasionally, requests come directly from patients, or parents on behalf of their children, to confirm an original diagnosis before embarking on a course of treatment.
When we receive these requests, along with an accompanying report, our physicians study these previously prepared slides and either agree with the original diagnosis, or provide a more accurate diagnosis. 100% of our slide consults receive definitive diagnoses.
Our physicians will issue a report containing their diagnosis for the referring physician. A copy will also be sent to the pathologist who provided the original diagnosis on this case.
