Why Quest Diagnostics?
When treating patients with complex or chronic infections, comprehensive testing capabilities, convenient specimen collection options, and extensive support are vital. With tests and screens for resistant organisms and newly-emerging strains of TB and other dangerous pathogens, our innovative tests and extensive services enable you to provide the best care possible. Improved testing options and services can help increase detection in patients who might otherwise go undiagnosed.
