Lab

Please see the below lab hour changes – We will be screening everyone for COVID19 symptoms and requiring you to mask.  If you have fever or respiratory symptoms, please call your provider before presenting for lab work so we may best facilitate your care and protect the safety of all our patients, visitors and staff.
Patients may experience a longer than normal wait time, particularly in the early morning hours. Afternoons are generally much better! We close for lunch for 30 minutes between Noon and 1:30pm.

Core Physicians offers a wide range of on site lab services for blood work, specimen collection and testing. Our highly trained lab technicians and clinicians are committed to providing patients with the highest level of customer satisfaction possible.
