David S. Klimstra, MD -- Chair, Department of Pathology

I am a pathologist with more than 20 years of experience in making diagnoses based on examining tissue samples removed by biopsy or during surgery. My special expertise is diagnosing tumors that arise in the stomach, colon, and hepatobiliary region (liver, pancreas, and bile ducts).

My colleagues and I work very closely with a broader team of medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals to offer our patients the most effective treatment plan for the tumor type that they are fighting.
