Dr. Long obtained dual undergraduate degrees in Economics and Art History from Stanford prior to enrolling at UCSF where he completed his MD, a post-sophomore fellowship in Pathology, residency in Anatomic Pathology, a Fellowship in Surgical Pathology, and a Clinical Instructorship in Cytopathology.

He then spent sixteen years in community practice honing his expertise in fine needle aspiration, cytopathology, and surgical pathology. Dr. Long was one of the first pathologists to pioneer the use of ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration biopsies in an outpatient clinic setting, helping to establish USFNA as a core component to contemporary cytopathology practices. During this time he also gained valuable leadership and business experience including directing two cytopathology laboratories, overseeing billing and outreach operations, and serving four consecutive terms as president of one of the largest community practice groups in California (serving 10 locations, two large clinical labs, 7 area hospitals, and providing services for over 150,000 anatomic pathology specimens/yr).

Dr. Long returned to Stanford in 2012 to join the Department of Pathology in the sections of Cytopathology and Surgical Pathology. He has been active teaching USFNA, cytopathology, and surgical pathology to residents and fellows and his research interests primarily focus on expanding and refining the role of fine needle aspiration in supporting diagnosis, precision medicine, and clinical trial research.

His current administrative roles include: Director of Anatomic Pathology, Director of Surgical Pathology, Director of the Histology Laboratory, and Director of the Immunohistochemistry Laboratory.

  • Bacillary angiomatosis of the cervix and vulva in a patient with aids OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY Long, S. R., Whitfeld, M. J., EADES, C., Koehler, J. E., Korn, A. P., Zaloudek, C. J. 1996; 88 (4): 709-711

    Abstract

    Bacillary angiomatosis is a clinicopathologic entity that most often is identified in the skin of patients with AIDS. This report presents an example of bacillary angiomatosis of the female genital tract.Bacillary angiomatosis presented as red-purple nodules of the vulva and cervix in a 32-year-old woman with AIDS. Histologic examination revealed the lobular epithelioid vascular proliferation and hazy clumps of bacteria that characterize bacillary angiomatosis. The diagnosis was confirmed on Warthin-Starry-stained issue and by blood cultures, which were positive for Bartonella (Rochalimaea) henselae.Accurate diagnosis of this infection is important because 1) bacillary angiomatosis is commonly mistaken for Kaposi sarcoma, 2) it is effectively treated with inexpensive antibiotics, and 3) undiagnosed and/or untreated bacillary angiomatosis may lead to overwhelming disseminated infection and death.
