Logan University Health Centers hosted a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony today for Lab Test Diagnostics, a laboratory services provider within the Montgomery Health Center.
The lab is open to the public as well as a resource for Logan students, faculty and staff.
Logan’s Director of Clinical Experience Jason Goodman, DC said the lab currently offers the full gamut of lab services from testing for metabolic disorders to testing for strep and tuberculosis. Additionally, the lab can be a resource for local chiropractors needing lab work for their patients.
Taqueer and Rubina Haider, who serve as chief executive office and chief operating officer of Lab Test Diagnostics, said they are thrilled to open their third lab at Logan University. Their others labs are in South County and Farmington, Missouri. “We are excited to be affiliated with Logan University,” Rubina said. “It is a big moment in the history of our labs as we continue to serve the community.”
Historically, Logan has offered lab services, however those services were outsourced. Logan”s Dean of College of Chiropractic Vincent DeBono, DC, CSCS, said having the lab on site greatly supports Logan”s health centers. “It provides the opportunity for real-life interpretation,” he said. “Students can observe blood draws and access results quicker.”
The lab services are available daily and a phlebotomist is on site Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Operations are overseen by Logan Professor Robert Kuhn, DC, DACBR, ART®.
