Nadia can recommend the lab services you need based on the type of symptoms you have and your overall health.

What are the benefits of an in-clinic lab?

Select point-of-care testing provides results in minutes so you can proceed with treatment without any delays. For instance, Nadia can quickly confirm contagious infections like COVID-19 and flu in the office. She customizes a care plan to support your recovery and prevent the spread of the infection to others.

Nadia also collects blood work and other labs at the office. She sends them out to laboratories for your convenience, so you don’t need to travel to other facilities for testing. This saves you time, money, and the hassles of traveling to other locations.

Virtual telehealth visits are available to get lab results without needing an in-office visit.
