Laboratory

Riverview Medical Associates maintains C.L.I.A. approved Physician Owned Laboratory. Kalyani I. Gardilla is our laboratory director. We have met all state and national standards necessary to provide this service to Medicare recipients and others. Please note that the laboratory rules for the state of New Jersey and nationally require that we may only do laboratory work ordered by Riverview Medical Associates physicians on patients of Riverview Medical Associates. We are sorry that we are unable to perform laboratory studies ordered by other physicians except in very unusual circumstances where there is co-management of the patient with a Riverview Medical Associates physician.

Unfortunately, many insurance companies will contract with an outside reference laboratory and require that individuals have their laboratory studies done at these facilities. Please contact your insurance to verify where you can have your labwork done unless you have traditional Medicare.

Laboratory services are an integral part of the practice of internal medicine and its sub-specialties. We provide standard testing of cholesterol, lipid studies, prostate specific antigen testing, thyroid studies, liver and kidney function analysis and complete blood count analysis. We can also test for various inflammatory processes such as rheumatoid arthritis and other connective tissue diseases. We perform rapid turnaround time prothrombin times for the management of patients on anticoagulation with Coumadin (Warfarin).

It is our policy to promptly notify patients of the results of their laboratory tests either by telephone or by written communication. Some of the doctors may also be able to fax or email results if requested by individual patients. Laboratory information is used in treatment and monitoring of various different disease states and in the primary prevention of multiple disorders. Cholesterol screening, prostate screening, and screening for diabetes can all be powerful aids to the physician in providing guidance in regards to risk factor reduction for various disease states.
