Dr. Reenu Malhotra

Why did you choose to specialize in Pathology?

I was always intrigued by the disease process at the microscopic level. Pathology was the first subject in medical school where I found true interaction with the disease process in the human body. I found the tissue slides fascinating as they provided continuous challenges of diagnostic dilemmas. There is a sense of extreme satisfaction when getting to the correct diagnosis that leads to the right treatment for a patient.
