These patient service centers are comprehensive, offering collection of everything from blood and urine to throat cultures.

Blood Tests

  • Antibodies
  • Cancer
  • Drug effectiveness
  • Hormones
  • Pregnancy
  • Thyroid
  • White/red cell levels

Urinalysis

A urinalysis is the physical, chemical, and microscopic examination of urine. It involves a number of tests to detect and measure various compounds that pass through the urine.
