Due to our highly specialized area of practice in bleeding and clotting disorders, our laboratory provides many - if not more - services that local hospitals and larger clinics provide.
Our intimate setting and experience in pediatrics make the phlebotomy experience less traumatic than that of a large hospital, which can often be intimidating and frightening. This also comes with shorter wait times for lab draws, not to mention better parking!

Siemens PFA 1000
