Dear Gentlemen:

As 3.8% shareholders of Ameripath, Inc. ("Ameripath" or the "Company") we write
to you under the presumption that you constitute the "Special Committee"
referred to in yesterday's announcement. To say that MMI is disappointed in this
deal would be an understatement. We are struggling to understand your
interpretation of fiduciary responsibility and business judgment. We ask you to
reconsider your implicit view that now is the best time to sell the Company at
$21.25 per share.


-    Based upon the parameters laid out by Jim New for the Company's 2004
     performance in our November 5th meeting, we believe this deal is even
     cheaper. The earnings growth in 2004 should approach 40% in EBITDA and 30%
     in EPS. You have sold 2004's robust growth at 2003's weak prices!

-    At 6.7x and 11.7x Street Consensus 2003 EBITDA and EPS respectively, the
     valuation for this deal is a discount of 26% and 37% of the EBITDA and P/E
     trading multiples of Ameripath's publicly-traded comparables. This deal is
     even a 20%+ discount to Ameripath's own trading multiples from just six
     months ago. The entire lab sector, but Ameripath in particular, is
     experiencing a wholesale multiple compression - why sell now?

-    Based upon the fairness opinion filed by Dianon yesterday, the mean LTM and
     forward-l2-months EBITDA valuations for recent transactions in Ameripath's
     sector are 13.7x and 11.5x respectively, implying a range of $41 to $43, or
     double the Welsh Carson deal.

-    We have attempted to duplicate the valuation assumptions that could have
     led you to your interpretation of fair value, but simply cannot. Using
     conservative assumptions, many from our discussions with management, our
     discounted cash flow models indicate an implied value of $31 to $46 using
     JP Morgan's assumptions from their fairness opinion for Dianon. Our LBO
     model assumes more conservative assumptions than the actual deal (higher
     equity and no existing 4.9% ownership - as another financial sponsor would
     view it) and still shows a viable LBO at $25 and north. If the LBO were
     started one year later, $30 is attainable.


-    We believe this is a management buy-out that has been pre-arranged with
     extraordinary barriers to competitive bidding in order to ensure a low
     price from shareholders for management's enrichment. With management's
     total stock ownership a paltry 1.5%, they cannot be considered sellers in
     this circumstance, only buyers with the incentive to low-ball a price. Why
     else would a special committee of independent shareholders be necessary?

-    The rush and timing of this process imply a financially distressed entity.
     Ameripath is not financially distressed.

-    Selling the Company when LabCorp has just purchased Dianon, its second
     large deal in six months, and Quest is too embroiled in FTC negotiations
     and proxy solicitation for Unilab to formalize a competitive bid, is a
     clear move to eliminate the two major strategic acquirers from competition.

-    We believe this deal was never properly shopped to equity sponsors.
     Allowing Welsh Carson, holders of 4.9% of PATH stock in the public market,
     to be the preliminary bidder is a poison pill to the rest of the financial
     sponsor community, implying that they will simply be outbid due to Welsh
     Carson's prior knowledge and lower cost basis.

-    A twelve-day window in late December is unacceptably short (at an
     extraordinarily difficult time) for other interested buyers to arrange
     financing and submit indications of interest.

         We have spoken with other major shareholders, all of whom agree that
$21.25 per share does not recognize Ameripath's prospects or value. If the best
you can do right now is an unacceptable price, how could a Special Committee of
Independent Directors, whose singular fiduciary responsibility is to the
shareholders, possibly justify a sale of the Company at this time? We imagine
the answer includes "based on the fairness opinion of SalomonSmithBarney." We
are amazed that the Special Committee could even entertain a fairness opinion
from SSB, who has earned investment banking revenue from Ameripath since the IPO
and were the lead underwriter when Ameripath sold stock last year at $26.00!
Since the announcement SSB has published additional research on Ameripath,
highly questionable behavior for an investment bank with an announced assignment
from the Company, and even had the temerity to issue an "Underperform - High
Risk" (a.k.a. "Sell") at the current deal price, signaling that the deal is
done. If the deal is done, what are SSB's investment bankers doing in these two
weeks? Clearly SSB is management's investment banker and cannot be relied upon
to shop Ameripath to other, likely higher bidders.


         In short, we will vote our shares "no" on this deal. If $21.25 is truly
the best price obtainable in this market, now is not the time to sell the
Company. After a three-year Bear Market, the most recent six months of which saw
a wholesale decline in multiple valuation in Ameripath's sector, how could you
possibly come to the view that now is the time to sell? Better that we hold
until the robust growth of 2004 is visible, the potential strategic acquirers
are unencumbered and overall equity market conditions are more favorable than
give away our Company now.
