We understand that travel and time are issues with many people, so we try to coordinate all tests during one visit or at your doctor's office.

During the evaluation, a patient will have several tubes of blood drawn that will be used for a number of tests. Additional tests that may be reuqired include chest x-rays, electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, and pulmonary function tests. If necessary, a PET scan or other required tests will also be run.
