The list below of shows the tests that we are able to complete in-house, however, some insurance contracts (Blue Choice [Companion] and Cigna) require testing by an outside lab. Those that we can complete in-house we will and you will know your results in less than 10 minutes!

For your convenience you may pick up the prescription at the front office if you have been seen within the last three months. However, we ask that you call our office at least 24 hours ahead of time so we can have the refill ready.
For our established patients, we will make an appointment for your lab work in advance and your exam at least 2 days later, so the lab results can be reviewed with you. For all lab results that are normal, we will mail you a card letting you know. If the lab results are abnormal, you will be called to come in and discuss the treatment plan with your doctor.
