Having been referred for a biopsy, no matter how small, can bring up a host of questions:

  • What is the difference between an biopsy and an FNA?
  • If I have a lump, is it cancer and what is the next step?

"Providing both services (biopsy & results) under one roof offers my patients a one-stop, seamless experience, as well as fast & accurate diagnosis."

Watch below the video of Dr. Nadelman for answers to your questions:

Having performed over 12,000 FNAs, as a board certified pathologist and cytopathologist, she is able to

  1. Perform the biopsy
  2. Immediately evaluate the biopsy material in the adjoining lab, (giving you quicker, more accurate results)

There are only about a dozen specialists in the entire U.S. like Dr. Nadelman.

Having one of the highest rates of obtaining “diagnosable” samples on the first effort virtually eliminates the need for repeat biopsies.

“Providing both services under one roof offers my patients a one-stop, seamless experience, as well as a fast & accurate diagnosis.”

Aware of the concern many patients have when they arrive in the office, Dr. Nadelman and her staff are known for their caring manner.

Dr. Celina Nadelman started out in Internal Medicine. After leaving the VA-UCLA Internal Medicine residency program, she performed basic science research in wound healing at USC. She then went into pathology and finished her AP/CP residency, Surgical Pathology Fellowship and Cytopathology Fellowship at UCLA. She worked at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center for several years as a staff pathologist, cytopathologist and clinical professor of pathology for the USC pathology residents. She revamped the FNA service there and enjoyed running the FNA clinic for the veterans. She soon started her own company as a solo practitioner performing and interpreting exclusively FNAs. She really likes working with patients, listening to their problems, and providing the most outstanding care she can regardless of the patient’s circumstances. Because she performs the FNA herself, she gets to know more about the patient’s history than is usually provided on requisition forms received by pathologists in most settings. The approach is holistic—she follows the process from beginning to end. She finds it gratifying to reduce turn-around time as well, relieving patient anxiety and making referring doctors happy.
