Lab work is ordered based on medical necessity, or as requested by the patient. This option for testing is a key component for identifying current or potential problems. We continue to learn and research our technologies to ensure our care is as comprehensive and beneficial to you as our patient. Some testing we can do in our office, but most are sent out to an independent facility. We do our best to choose a facility within your insurance network to reduce out of pocket cost, however it is difficult to stay current on all physicians and facilities as these status can change periodically and we do not always get notified. Please become familiar with your lab benefits, as well as office/medical benefits.
