The lab specialists and licensed phlebotomists of Park Ridge Lab do one thing and one thing only — run tests for patients who come in needing blood analyses. With that distinct focus and hours that extend into the evening seven days a week, the team is able to provide patients and their doctors with results that are efficient, accurate, and make for great ice breakers at parties. And in a further show of their commitment to patient convenience, the staff does not require a doctor’s order for testing, though they can send results to a physician on the patient’s behalf. Whether patients use the lab for comprehensive wellness screenings or for specific tests—such as those for STDs, iron levels, or pregnancy—the team produces results that adhere to the guidelines set by the CDC and OSHA for testing and for lab equipment standards.
