Lab­o­ra­to­ry Services

Onslow’s laboratory services are an integral part of the hospital and key to providing your physicians with the information they need to accurately diagnose their patients. Directed by experienced, board-certified pathologists, the lab employs only fully-trained, certified medical technologists, medical laboratory technicians, cytotechnologists, and phlebotomists. The laboratory offers a comprehensive selection of tests and services, and is accredited by the College of American Pathologists.

Our lab strives to accurately and efficiently perform physician-ordered tests and rapidly provide clear and timely reports. These reports are delivered directly to the physician. We ask for patients to discuss the results of these tests with their physician, who can interpret the results in light of their medical history. Our pathologists are always available to discuss concerns and to assist in interpreting results with your physician.

Their tests help to diagnose or rule out diseases, as well as monitor the progression or regression of diseases. Their results help physicians make critical decisions regarding treatment plans.
