What are lab services?

Lab services provide insight into how well your body is functioning at a specific point in time. They work by examining a sample of blood, urine, or other tissues to glean a wealth of information.

Thanks to advancements in medical technology, there are a vast array of reasons why lab work might be part of your routine care. At Femcare OB-GYN, in-house labs mean you won’t have to wait long for answers.
