Naples Pathology Associates


shutterstock_65753140Naples Pathology provides next business day turnaround times on routine outpatient specimens. Reports are available via fax, EMR interface, online, or as a hard copy.

We can deliver personalized service to our physician clients, and endeavor to accommodate their preferences. Our clients have direct access to the laboratory – we do not utilize an automated phone tree. When you call the laboratory you speak directly to one of our experienced staff members. Our pathologists are easily accessible and welcome discussion and/or review of slides with the referring physician on individual cases.

Naples Pathology Associates and the NPA laboratory have been in practice in Southwest Florida for over 20 years. Our pathologists have privileges at and provide anatomic and clinical pathology services to the NCH Healthcare System, and have privileges at multiple outpatient surgery centers.
