Dahl-Chase Pathology Associates

A professional group of 15 pathologists, each certified by the American Board of Pathology, which has provided exceptional anatomic and clinical pathology services to the State of Maine and beyond since its inception in 1971. As pathologists, we are physician experts who examine tissues and specimens, confirm the accuracy of lab tests and interpret results in order to facilitate a patient's diagnosis and treatment. Given the complexity of modern healthcare, our pathologists have subspecialty certification in various aspects of pathology including hematopathology, dermatopathology, cytopathology, and transfusion medicine, with subspecialty expertise in breast pathology, molecular pathology, gastrointestinal pathology, genitourinary pathology, and head & neck / endocrine pathology.
