The Doctors Clinic provides patients with full-service, highly complex laboratory work with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. We provide a comprehensive spectrum of tests necessary to diagnose and treat many medical problems.
The laboratory is federally licensed by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) and is surveyed for compliance to these standards by the Washington State Department of Health. Internal and external quality control procedures have been developed to ensure consistent testing and the integrity of results.
For the convenience of our patients, all nine Doctors Clinic locations are facilitated to provide the service of drawing blood, thus providing easy access with minimal disruption to their day. These labs are staffed with trained lab personnel whose primary responsibility is to provide quality collection service.
