 Gynecologic Pathology

Our Gynecologic Pathology service provides diagnostic expertise in benign and malignant diseases of the gynecologic tract, directed by fellowship-trained gynecologic and cyto- pathologists. We provide next day turnaround of most biopsies, and offer molecular companion diagnostics including mismatch repair, homologous recombination deficiency, and Foundation One.

Our focus is on high quality, evidence-based pathology with clear reports and easy access for our clinical colleagues. To ensure quality and standardization of reports, gynecologic pathology cases are signed out by one of our 5 gyn pathologists, and all new malignant diagnoses are reviewed by at least 2 pathologists. Our pathologists are always available for discussion, including discussion of pap and HPV testing, retrospective review and correlation of paps and cervical biopsies, or to review outside cases.

Dr. Lauren Jacobson completed anatomic pathology residency, surgical pathology fellowship, and breast/gynecologic pathology fellowship at the University of Washington/Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. She also participates in companion diagnostic testing in the trial setting, directs the histology and immunohistochemistry laboratories, and presents at the multidisciplinary gynecologic oncology conference. The conference is open to anyone interested, and CME is offered.

Dr. Monica Phillips completed anatomic and clinical pathology residencies at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, surgical pathology fellowship with a 3-month focus in gynecologic pathology at UCLA, and cytopathology fellowship at the University of Mississippi. Dr. Phillips directs the cytopathology laboratory, and is available for discussion of Pap cytology and HPV testing.

Dr. Emily Waterhouse completed anatomic and clinical pathology residencies and surgical pathology fellowship at University of California, San Francisco.

Dr. Faith Ough completed anatomic and clinical pathology residencies and fellowship training in cytopathology and surgical pathology at Harbor-UCLA and USC.

Dr. Elizabeth Moschiano completed anatomic and clinical pathology residencies at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Hematopathology fellowship at LAC + USC Medical Centers.

Any of our pathologists are always available to discuss specific cases, emerging concepts in gynecologic pathology, recommended molecular testing, or anything else!
