Laboratory testing for children is a special service, which requires special expertise. Our lab technicians at Advanced Pediatrics are skilled professionals familiar with working with all our pediatric patients, newborns through adolescents. Advanced Pediatrics takes pride in having a high-quality laboratory onsite for your convenience. We know how busy everyone can get and this service allows one less offsite appointment. The in-house lab ensures quicker delivery of test results, which allows for faster diagnoses and treatment for your children. Any specialized lab that we cannot be run inhouse we will send out from our lab for your convenience. All test results can be viewed in the Patient Portal
Please call our office to schedule a lab appointment if you have outside lab orders or if one of our providers has ordered labs to be done at a later appointment date.
If you have a lab order that requires fasting, your child should abstain from eating or drinking anything besides water 12 hours prior to the blood draw.
Please consult the lab for specific specimen requirements, including collection kits. Collection kits are essential to ensure the sample is collected correctly and to prevent contamination.
