Our lab work is processed through LabCorp. If your insurance company requires that you use another lab, please notify us at check-in.

We strive to provide lab results within 72 hours. However, some results may require more time. We will communicate normal results through your MyChart portal unless you tell us otherwise. Please sign up for MyChart access today.

Medical records requests from other medical providers are processed free of charge.

3. Serving pregnant women
4. Welcoming patients with Medicaid, Medicare, private insurance and the uninsured (via affordable sliding scale payments)
