APMG represents a “best choice” for pathology services.  The group demonstrates a dedication to patient care first and foremost, fosters a commitment to the medical staff, the administrative staff, and the laboratory staff of the hospitals we serve, and draws on a record deep with experience.  The experience of the group extends to large and small hospitals alike, affiliated hospitals, independent hospitals, and non-hospital laboratories.  The group demonstrates a diversity of culture, a wealth of background, a sense to adapt, and a proven ability to grow.  I have seen the group work with new hospitals, recruit pathologists and staff, and grow as a whole, to the satisfaction of all.  As a member of the group, as a pathologist, as an individual, I hold the group and its service with deep respect.  APMG is a “best choice” in all respects.
