CONGRESSMAN PETE SESSIONS (R-TX) TOURS PROPATH TO UNDERSTAND THE VITAL ROLE OF PATHOLOGY IN PATIENT CARE

 

Dallas, TX (October 22, 2008)- Congressman Pete Sessions visited today and met with several ProPath pathologists and staff members to get a hands-on demonstration of the critical and expanding role that pathology plays in patient care.  Congressman Sessions was greeted and given a tour of ProPath's state-of-the-art medical facilities by cofounder and senior partner E.P. Jenevein, M.D.

At the conclusion of the tour, Congressman Sessions issued the following statement:

“North Texas has become a center for leading-edge medical care and facilities, and ProPath Laboratory is an important part of our region’s healthcare capabilities.  From breast cancer detection to immune disorder discovery, pathology is central to a 21st century health care system, delivering life-saving disease diagnoses and patient-centered treatment options.

In Congress, I support eliminating outdated and overly-burdensome regulations that inhibit the doctor/patient relationship.  I rely on physicians, like those at ProPath, to provide quality care, and I am pleased for the opportunity to see firsthand the innovative medical technologies and research conducted at ProPath laboratory in Dallas.”

With 35 pathologists, ProPath is one of the largest physician-owned pathology groups in the Southwest, processing over 400,000 surgical and cytology cases annually.  From its state-of-the-art facilities in Dallas, Texas, ProPath serves physicians and patients in 46 states.  Our board certified pathologists offer subspecialty expertise in Dermatopathology, Gastrointestinal Pathology, Hematopathology, Cytopathology, Breast Pathology, Urologic Pathology, Podiatric Pathology, Surgical Pathology, Renal Pathology and Immunohistochemistry.
