View information about this organization

Service Description

Provides a wide range of tests to aid physicians in the determination of overall health status, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of disease in their patients.

Although the extent of testing varies at the different laboratories throughout the Region, some requirements are standard to all laboratories:

  • Laboratory tests are performed only with a doctor’s order.
  • Some tests require the patient to fast. That is nothing to eat or drink for 8 to 14 hours before the specimen is collected. When in doubt, ask your physician or the laboratory whether fasting is required.
  • To determine the correct dosage of medication you are taking, it generally is necessary to collect the specimen at a certain time before or after the drug has been taken. Once again, check with the laboratory if you are not sure of when to come.
  • Some tests require specific patient preparation, and therefore the laboratory will give instructions and may need to arrange an appointment date.
