Quality Laboratory Service has become a “one-stop shopping” laboratory. We take all steps to triage every test request to the appropriate laboratory, saving the client from having to sort out what tests go where. If a test is not yet established as a send-out here, we do the research to find the laboratory that performs the assay, reviewing price, and turn-around time. Referred tests are loaded into our computer just like an in-house test, so all test information is available to Client Services and data linked users.
For information on tests not listed in this Directory, contact the Send-out Coordinators at 718-646-5100. Our goal is to respond within two hours to all inquiries received during normal business hours.
Quality Laboratory Service will bill the hospital; reference Laboratories, industrial client, clinic or medical group when applicable under New York State regulations. Our Accounts Receivable and Billing Specialists, 1-718- 570-8080, are available to answer questions and resolve any problems you may have. Any discrepancies in billing should be reported to Accounts Receivable and billing immediately. All bills are due and payable upon receipt.
