From the endocrine (i.e. hormone testing) laboratory to the andrology and embryology high-complexity laboratories, our practice is in compliance with CLIA guidelines. This includes the professionals on staff, our quality assurance/quality control programs, and proficiency testing. Adherence to CLIA guidelines assures our patients that they are getting the highest quality procedures.
American Board of Bioanalysis (ABB)
The ABB certifies Dr. Donahue as a High Complexity Laboratory Director (HCLD). Dr. Donahue has additional certification meeting the requirements of CLIA and ABB.
