Laboratory testing is a key component of detection, diagnosis, and treatment of cancers and blood disorders. Cancer patients undergo many different types of tests throughout their cancer treatment. Routine laboratory tests provide quick results, helping our physicians prescribe, or adjust your cancer treatment plan as needed. Lab services are offered on-site through Quest Diagnostics.
Although the time period required for processing and receiving test results may vary, your physician will review your results as soon as they become available, and discuss them with you at your next visit. If any of your test results require immediate attention, your oncologist or nurse will contact you without delay.
Testing that must be processed off site will be reviewed by our cancer specialists once the results are available. We will work within your insurance company’s guidelines, as your plan may require lab tests be performed at one of their contracted laboratory facilities.
