A Beacon of Light on Your Cancer Care Journey

EASTERN CONNECTICUT HEMATOLOGY & ONCOLOGY ASSOCIATES

Laboratory Services

Many of the decisions about your treatment are based on your lab results. That is why ECHO Associates is proud to have our own laboratory services on the premises. We are CLIA- and state-certified, providing comprehensive in house laboratory testing.

From start to finish, all lab patient services are handled in house. Our MAs and nurses take samples in the exam room, which are immediately send to our lab for efficient and accurate testing. This ensures that our providers have faster access to your results and can initiate treatment with minimal disruption to care. 

You may be asked to wait until the tests have been processed before you receive chemotherapy or leave the office. Some test results are not immediately available and can be obtained later from your doctor or nurse.
