What is on-site medical lab testing?
On-site medical lab testing allows Pediatrics of Long Island to perform blood work and urine samples from the comfort of their own office.

Instead of visiting the office for an initial appointment before driving across town for lab work, you can get everything you need done under one roof.
What is on-site medical lab testing used for?
Medical labs use special medical devices and tools to analyze samples of blood or urine to help prevent, diagnose, and treat certain diseases and conditions. Medical lab services can also help physicians track a disease or how well a treatment works.

- Iron deficiency (anemia)

If your child is at risk of prediabetes or diabetes, Dr. Ferrand and Dr. Moawad may recommend further testing.
