The Vitros 5600 from Ortho Clinical Diagnostics
Nephrology Associates has made a substantial investment in the health of our patients with the opening of our new blood lab services department. Our practice now offers convenient, on-site lab services in our Newark main office, using state-of-the-art equipment.
If you are a patient at Nephrology Associates, you can schedule an appointment for your lab work right here -- with the staff you already know and trust. In many cases, we can perform your labs an hour before your scheduled appointment with your physician or nurse practitioner. This saves you the hassle of a separate trip to an outside lab company.
Given the nature of kidney disease, and the need for frequent lab visits for proper monitoring, our in-house lab can save you valuable time.
In January, 2015, we will begin rolling-out lab services to all of our other offices one-by-one. Within a few months, we will be able to perform your blood work on-site at all of our Nephrology Associates offices.
How Does it Work?
- As of now, lab services are only available in our Newark main office. However, all of our offices will offer lab services soon.
- Call (302) 225-0451 to schedule your lab appointment. Lab hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. The office is closed daily from noon to 1:00 p.m. for lunch.
- We also offer same-day walk-in servce, but we recommend that you call first to avoid delays.
- We accept most insurance plans, and self-pay.
View Your Lab Results Online
Nephrology Associates offers our patients online access to their medical records via our Patient Portal. Once your physician has reviewed and approved your records, they become available to you - and only you - via a secure website.
Available medical information includes lab results, prescription drugs, allergies, visit summaries, and more.
Using the Patient Portal, you can request changes or additions to your information, schedule an appointment, and send secure messages to our office staff.
We strongly encourage all of our patients to enroll in this FREE service. It takes only a few clicks. Ask about our Patient Portal at your next visit, or call any Nephrology Associates office for more information.
