A phlebotomist prepares to take a blood sample for testing

When you need lab work, you want to be sure the phlebotomist is skilled, that your lab results are accurate and that you get them quickly.

At MaineGeneral, we strive to bring you the same level of service that we would expect as patients.

We conduct and analyze lab tests right here in our community, and we are very proud of our local connections.

We are affiliated with Mayo Laboratories where we send rare or unusual tests and consult with their experts if necessary.
