Our client retention is unparalleled in the industry because we are much more than just the provider of quality diagnostics. We have grown primarily as a result of our differentiating business model which is both physician-centric – providing superior service and support – and clinically relevant – providing innovative and disruptive technology to improve patient outcomes. What makes us different from other labs is the added value we bring through personal attention and professional support and the effort we make to understand our clients’ needs. Our success comes from helping clinicians deliver premium services to the patients in their care – through a full menu of cost–conscious testing options and cutting edge technologies with clinically–relevant results, all in a medically and fiscally responsible manner. In addition, our laboratory has pioneered the development of business solutions for our clients, providing data and analytics to help them operate at their fullest potential.
