Did someone say LAB...
June 25, 2020
Did you know that we have dedicated lab appointments each weekday from 8:30 am until 9:00 am?
We do fasting labs prior to your appointment with the provider if you are interested. This gives you actual numbers to discuss with your provider at your visit.
So... get a pat on the back or some needed motivation, either way you have the opportunity to ask your questions directly with your provider.
But don't worry, if you like getting everything done in one visit, we will be happy to assist and you will be contacted by one of our staff members to answer your questions and give you the information you need about your results.
Can't make it into the office for your lab work?
