WHO CAN I CONTACT ABOUT MY LAB RESULTS?

CAN I COMPLETE ALL MY LABORATORY AT THE BROOKRIDGE OFFICE?

Brookridge Internal Medicine Associates provides in-house laboratory services along with high-quality, comprehensive patient care.

The majority of laboratory testing can be completed in the office, and results are often available within a few days.
