(YorkPedia Editorial):- New York City, New York Dec 14, 2021 ( – A Texas-based forensic pathologist, Dr. Uribe provides forensic pathology services and consultations from his private practice – Dead Man’s Hand Forensics – based in San Antonio. With over 15 years of experience, he is dedicated to seeking the truth through the application of the forensic sciences.

Pathology is the branch of medical science that involves the study and diagnosis of disease through the examination of surgically removed organs, tissues, bodily fluids, and in some cases, the whole body. It is the purest diagnostic specialty. Known as the “Doctor’s Doctor”, pathologists interact with physicians, patients, and families to diagnose disease by ensuring the accuracy and reliability of laboratory testing methods according to rigorous laboratory standards. Pathologists provide quality information to clinicians so they can treat their patients with the best data set available. 

Simply defined, forensic pathology is the study of injury, disease, and death. Medical examiners are instrumental in the death investigation process as the information we gather determines the cause and manner of death, provides answers and closure for grieving families, and is a bridge between the medical and legal worlds in providing courtroom testimony in criminal and civil trials.

Paul Uribe was born and raised on the beaches of Southern California and the forests of Southern Oregon. After attending Claremont McKenna College, he received a direct commission into the US Army to attend the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. His post-graduate medical education included training at Madigan Army Medical Center, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, National Naval Medical Center, Armed Forces Medical Examiner System, and Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, State of Maryland in Baltimore. His job titles have included Staff Pathologist at Madigan Army Medical Center; Chief of Pathology at Martin Army Community Hospital in Fort Benning Georgia; Deputy Medical Examiner, Regional Medical Examiner, and Director of the Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner in the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System. 

He retired from active duty with nearly 24 years of service. During his military career, he was awarded the “A” Proficiency Designator, Order of Medical Military Merit (O2M3), Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Joint Service Commendation Medal with one oak leaf cluster, Meritorious Service Medal with one oak leaf cluster, and Army Superior Unit Award among others. He graduated from the Army Medical Department’s Intermediate Level Education and Medical Management of Biological and Chemical Casualties Course.
