Others have said: UW Ocular Pathology Laboratory “I enjoy the attention to detail and the clarification of disease process that the University of Wisconsin Eye Pathology Laboratory brings to my cases. The prompt return of an accurate pathologic diagnosis has helped on many cases where the clinical diagnosis was not obvious.
