We draw blood and urine samples in our clinic, and this service is provided so that you do not have to go to another location to have this done. We utilize Quest Laboratory as our on-site lab. However, if your insurance requires us to use another laboratory, we will use that laboratory. Please inform us if your insurance requires a different laboratory.
That depends on the type of laboratory test you had done. Some lab tests take longer than others. Ask your doctor, nurse, or laboratory personnel how and when you can expect to receive your lab results.
The choice of a physician is one left up to you. If you have not had one of our physicians recommended to you, information on each of our physicians is found on our website – just click here.
