KRMC Welcomes another Mayo-Trained Pathologist

Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) is pleased to welcome Mayo-trained pathologist Dr. Brent Bedke who joins with our other Mayo-trained pathologist, Dr. Ryan Swapp at KRMC’s Clinical Laboratory. As a pathologist, Dr. Bedke is an expert in identifying disease through laboratory analysis of tissue samples, bone marrow, blood, and other body fluids.  Often, pathologists are the experts that make a definitive diagnosis of a disease. Dr. Bedke received his doctorate in medicine from the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, UT and completed a four-year residency in Pathology and a one-year fellowship in Cytopathology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  With his prestigious background, Dr. Bedke’s skills are essential to the overall quality of healthcare in our community. Pathology expertise is essential to the proper diagnosis, treatment, and management of many health conditions and diseases; which include cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Dr. Bedke states: “As pathologists, we usually don’t have personal contact with the patients we serve. However, we’re highly accountable to the patient and their doctors to assure all test results are extremely accurate. With our backgrounds and training, Dr. Swapp and I have implemented the same meticulous procedures used at Mayo to provide extremely thorough and accurate laboratory analysis in as short of time as possible.”  He adds, “We’re here to serve the community and assure the best care possible.”   For more information about KRMC’s Clinical Laboratory services, please...
