About Us

About PPS

As the largest, physician-owned, anatomic pathology group in South Carolina, Professional Pathology Services, PC offers the broadest range of subspecialty board certifications of any practice in the state. This gives us the ability to consult internally and ensure that our clients receive the most accurate diagnosis possible.

Along with serving the pathology needs of Palmetto Health Richland, Palmetto Health Baptist for more than 30 years and now including Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge and Palmetto Health Tuomey, PPS also services health care facilities and physician offices of all sizes and specialties across the region.

Many of our staff members hold faculty appointments at area medical schools and, as such, remain on the cutting edge of the latest developments in pathology. In fact, PPS operates both the OB-GYN Pathology program and the Ophthalmology Pathology program for the University of South Carolina School of Medicine. PPS also participates in numerous group cancer discussions held on all of the Palmetto Health campuses, as well as Hilton Head Hospital, Coastal Carolina Hospital, Bluffton-Okatie Outpatient Surgery Center and KershawHealth. These include weekly breast and general cancer conferences, bi-weekly colposcopy conferences, as well as monthly GI, prostate and thoracic cancer conferences.

Whether you are a large surgery center or a small practice, we have the expertise and experience to meet all of your anatomic pathology needs. Because our pathologists live, work and teach in the area, they are conveniently available for consultation whenever needed.
