"I work with the rest of the laboratory staff to assure the accuracy of the tests performed in the hospital's laboratories. We provide our patients with all of the laboratory tests they need. These tests help us diagnose and stage cancer, plan treatments, monitor the disease and how treatments are working, and evaluate patients’ health."
