I came in one day without an appoint and waited two hours as a walk-in before I had to leave without being tested. I made an appointment through Quest Lab Testing for the next day, showed up on time, got tested easily and was on my way in 15-20 minutes. Staff is friendly and helpful.

This clinic is rated highly in reviews for their friendly staff

Friendly Staff

Have gone here forever and always made an appointment. I get there 10 minutes before the appointed time and am out within 20 minutes at most! Staff is super friendly, efficient and answer any questions. Recommend them to all my friends. Moved to Richmond and the lab here is closed on Saturdays. So if I need lab work done on Saturday, I go to Clinton Twp. lab.
