Our expert lab technicians (phlebotomists), supervised by highly-trained pathologists, perform a variety of tests; some check the status of your health while others assist our physicians with finding the cause of your symptoms. No additional trips to hospitals or outside labs will be necessary. We use every opportunity to provide you with a comfortable and convenient experience.

The lab technicians and pathologists give our physicians clear and complete information needed to care for you in the best way possible. They know how to test many growths or lumps and are specially trained to work with patients of all ages, including children.

Our shared laboratory system makes it easy for pathologists to discuss your lab results with your doctor. Most tests like blood work, urine, stool and nasal swabs are available within 24 hours. Tissue and cell tests are usually ready within 72 hours.

Clinical lab (blood, urine, stool)

We offer a wide range of on-site clinical laboratory services to our patients. Our highly-trained technicians and technologists provide blood drawing services, specimen collection and testing using the latest technology available. In addition to these services, our licensed professionals perform highly-complex testing in chemistry, coagulation, hematology and serology.

For laboratory results on blood, urine and stool specimens, please call your provider’s office directly.

Pathology lab (biopsies, Pap smears)

Our pathology department processes and examines cellular samples and biopsies in order to find the underlying cause of your symptoms. Our technicians, supervised by our team of pathologists, examine samples from many body sites and consult with the clinical departments that send specimens to the laboratory. Cytopathology services including pap testing and fine needle aspiration biopsy, are also provided on-site. The department also does molecular testing for infections such as human papillomavirus, chlamydia and gonorrhea.
