Peter Humphrey, MD, PhD, is a pathologist who specializes in surgical pathology, as well as in diagnosing cancers and diseases in the prostate, bladder, kidneys and testes. Dr. Humphrey, director of genitourinary pathology at Yale Medicine, is particularly interested in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer, and remains optimistic. “There have been tremendous clinical, radiological, histopathological, and molecular advances in risk stratification of patients with prostate cancer. This translates into better patient care.” Dr. Humphrey says.
“The driving force of what I do is in knowing the impact a diagnosis has on each patient and how it can change his or her life,” Dr. Humphrey says. “We are mindful of that potential impact when we review slides, render diagnoses, and sign our pathology reports.”
At Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Humphrey is a professor of pathology.
