    Great piece. I would only submit that the statement “…forensic pathology is the most exciting… part of our job” requires a deeper reflection. I find exciting many other aspects of working in Pathology. Pathologists are also researchers, and discoveries made through research create significant excitement, certainly more than the somber environment of autopsy rooms in forensic centers.
    The other comment I have is regarding the suggestion made to patients to try to speak with their pathologist, an idea I fully support. However, certain institutions not only do not support that, but even forbid that. Some of our colleagues in the clinical disciplines may feel anxious or even threatened about having their patients talking directly with other doctors providing care (the pathologists, in this case).
