Our office is equipped with a full service outpatient lab. We have partnered with LabCorp to be able to offer you lab services directly in our office rather than traveling to another location for your lab tests.
If your insurance plan requires you to use a different out patient lab service you MUST NOTIFY the office prior to your labs being completed.
