The laboratory is fully staffed with registered Medical Technologists and certified Phlebotomy Technicians, under the direction of Michael Choi, MD, consulting pathologist with KMB Service Corporation.

The laboratory is open for outpatient services from 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday and from 7:00am to 12:00pm Saturday.
