Laboratory Tests at DVO
Our in-house Laboratory
For your convenience we perform a variety of laboratory tests in our office. Thanks to a generous donation made by the Martin Family, we are equipped to run most blood work in office. While some important tests are referred to outside labs, many helpful laboratory tests are performed onsite which improves continuity of care. These include but are not limited to:
- Tumor Markers
- Basic and Complete Metabolic Panels
If your physician or nurse practitioner orders diagnostic imaging
studies (such as CT, PET or MRI scans), you must schedule these tests at facilities authorized by your insurance company. In our facility, we offer MRI/PET/CT and diagnostic imaging. Testing should be scheduled so that results are available before your next scheduled appointment with us.
Your physician or nurse practitioner will discuss your test results with you at a scheduled appointment. Our staff cannot give test results directly to patients unless the physician has authorized release of specific information. However, the staff will make a follow-up appointment for you if you do not already have one.
