Laboratory/Diagnostic Testing

We recommend all tests be done within 30 days of your last visit, unless otherwise specified by the physician.  We will notify you of your test results.  Please call if you do not hear from us within 2 weeks of completing your tests.  Labs and diagnostic tests are not ordered prior to appointments.  Patients need to be assessed face to face to determine which tests are appropriate.
