We will often coordinate labs to be drawn before your upcoming appointment.

Before any patient testing, a clinician must write an order so that the correct test is performed at the appropriate location.

We can also write the order for testing to a convenient location of your choice. We have the ability to rapidly transmit and receive information to and from these testing locations:
LabCorp
Quest Diagnostics
Lawrence General Hospital and satellites
• Diagnostic Laboratory (assisted living patients only)

We recommend that you use the above locations for testing to ensure timely results. We cannot assure when results are available at other testing locations.

Laboratory and imaging study results are reviewed every day that the office is open.

Urgent abnormal results are called to patients within one day.

Non-urgent results will be reviewed with patients at the next appointment or called to patients within 4 weeks.

Patients may also request results to be communicated via Relay Health.

In addition, we have the ability to send a copy of patient results to another specialist that you see.
