DMA’s laboratory is a high complexity testing laboratory licensed by the State of Tennessee.
DMA is also accredited by COLA, a national healthcare accreditation organization. Accreditation is given only to laboratories that apply rigid standards of quality in day-to-day operations, demonstrate continued accuracy in the performance of proficiency testing, and pass a rigorous on-site laboratory survey. This emphasis on quality manifests itself in reliable test results, an essential element in assuring excellence in patient care.
Our lab is not only dedicated to quality, but is also focused on enhancing the environment and experience of the blood testing process for our patients by offering drawing stations located throughout our clinic locations while providing a friendly atmosphere for family members.
All laboratory testing is performed by licensed laboratory personnel. Patient blood specimens are drawn by trained and experienced phlebotomists.
We offer a comprehensive test menu featuring state of the art automation and technology. With our large testing menu most lab tests are performed on site with an average annual testing volume in excess of 400,000 tests per year. Our Laboratory Information System stores all lab testing performed, to allow easy access by your physician.
