As the Lab Committee, we are responsible for ensuring that all lab procedures are carried out safely and successfully. Lab procedures include different blood tests, urine tests, and fecal tests that all play a vital role in each and every patient’s care. In most cases, lab personnel are able to obtain the samples on-site at clinic, which adds a valuable convenience for the patient, as other outpatient labs can have wait times up to two hours! Physicians and medical students are then able to interpret the lab results in order to further develop the best plan possible for treating each and every patient. The Labs Committee is a quiet one, but certainly plays a significant role in the care of our patients.
