43 years experience male
With a humanities background and board-certifications in anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, and ringside medicine, "The Pathology Guy" accidentally created one of the first medical sites providing information to individuals during the 1990's, and during those heady times handled 20-30 questions like these per day. http://www.pathguy.com remains a popular site for pathology teachers, learners, and the curious public. He has chaired the pathology department at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences since February 1992. His medical school roommate, distinguished radiologist Joe Panella MD, described him as the only loner he knows who doesn't whistle. "The Pathology Guy" is glad to see so many colleagues now answering the public's questions. Keep it up teammates -- where there is love of medicine, there is love of humankind.
