About this service:
The Laboratory provides medical and diagnostic services/testing, as ordered by physicians, to support diagnosis and treatment. Testing not available on-site is contracted through a reference laboratory.

To preserve confidentiality, and to ensure proper interpretation, lab results are available only through the requesting clinic or physician.
