For Patients

Most labs see a specimen. We see a child who will start kindergarten in the fall.

We never lose sight of the fact that every specimen represents a child. We know how important each child is to you. We want you to know they are equally important to us. We base our reputation on the quality of every test we conduct. We strive to build upon that reputation every day.
