Why Choose Eastern VetPath Over Our Competitors?


We want our clients to consider Eastern VetPath part of their team. The pathologist’s name, cell phone number, and email address is at the bottom of every Eastern VetPath report. If you have a question or concern, our pathologists want to help. No phone trees – if you have a question concerning a biopsy, please call our anatomic pathologist at 865-300-4056; if you have a question concerning a cytology, please call our clinical pathologist at 865-201-6460.
