Blood testing including tumor markers

Blood testing is available in relation with the work-up diagnosis and from customary obstetric and pre-operatory panels. In addition we test for tumor markers that are certain molecules produced by certain types of cancers. It is important to understand that the tumor markers don’t aid in the diagnosis of the specific tumor but once they are detected and a baseline level is measured, that can be used as reference to monitor the effectiveness of treatment or possible recurrences.

We offer customized blood testing panels including hormonal determinations and immunologic studies. You can benefit from blood specimen collection at the time of your visit and the results will be reported directly to us. Until the next appointment you don’t need to worry about additional visits to the laboratory and you may check your results online at our web patient portal.
