Laboratory services and testing is a key component of the detection, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Comprehensive Cancer Centers’s on-site laboratories provide quick results for many routine laboratory tests, helping physicians prescribe or adjust your treatment plan as needed without unnecessary delays in your treatment plan.
There may be some tests, however, that are not offered and must be done in outside labs. Also, your insurance company may require that some or all of your testing be done in outside labs. Outside labs are timely in analyzing results, and all testing is handled in a confidential manner, no matter where it is performed.
The time required for accurate test results varies. Your doctor will receive the results of your tests as soon as they are available, and will discuss the results with you during your next appointment.
