Primary care providers occassionally order lab work for patients, which can often be a critical part of an annual checkup or to help properly diagnose or manage a health issue. Primary Care Associates of Appleton's comprehensive, in-house laboratory provides one-stop service for busy patients, who can see their physician and complete their lab work all in one visit.
Accredited by COLA under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), PCAA has 90 unique lab tests that we perform in-house. Because of this extensive test menu, 90% of our laboratory testing volume is able to be processed on-site, offering convenience and prompt results for our patients and providers. Any specialty labs that cannot be done on-site are sent to Appleton Medical Center for testing.
