Meet our Laboratory

Panoramica Lab 1.jpg

The Clinical Laboratory is an essential tool for the medical area, since through it different pathologies are diagnosed and studies are performed to establish the type of treatment to be administered to the patient, as well as the follow-up of the same.

The laboratory is a technically young department in our clinic, but that does not mean that the staff working in it is not sufficiently prepared to provide the service you need.

Being in an area far from most of the services you could easily find in a city, quality health services are scarce and even more so clinical laboratory services. 
Fortunately, there are us, the main providers of this service in the area. And this doesn't mean you have to pay an exorbitant amount for blood tests, we are proud to say that our prices are lower than what you would find in the surrounding cities.
