Health Information

Access to secure and/or password-protected areas of this site is limited to authorized physician users and requires creation of an account.  Physicians must provide complete, accurate, and current information on the account and updated as appropriate.  Physicians are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their account and password information, and agree not to share or distribute account password information. Physicians agree to notify Lab immediately of any unauthorized use of their account or any other breach of security. Physicians further agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under their account or password.
