Suzanne Dintzis, M.D., Ph.D., is a board certified pathologist at UW Medical Center, a UW associate professor of Pathology, chief of UW Medical Center Anatomic Pathology Services and director of UW’s Pathology Laboratory Operations.

She understands the patient anxiety related to waiting for a pathology result and has a goal of rapid turnaround times to limit this time of uncertainty.
Dr. Dintzis earned her M.D and Ph.D. from Stanford. She is actively involved with the planning and implementation of institutional anatomic pathology quality and patient safety process improvements. Her current research interests include breast cancer research and exploring the interfaces between quality of care, transparency and communication.
