Did you know you have the right to choose where your pap smears and all lab work are processed?

Most decisions about your medical care are based on these lab results. Data from lab results, when identified early, play a significant role in treating cancer, HPV, STDs, diabetes, heart disease and more. When the stakes are that high, you want your lab work in the best and most experienced hands possible for the job. Who you choose to process your labs matters.
