We have Michigan trained and professional Phlebotomists at Both Livonia and Westland Medical Clinics performing Phlebotomy Diagnostics Testing. Phlebotomy is simply to make an incision in a vein with a needle. The actual procedure is called venipuncture.
This is an invasive procedure due to the incision made through the body by a cut or puncture. Phlebotomy is performed by a trained and certified Phlebotomist, these professionals must use mastery principles and techniques by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). The main role of a phlebotomist is to obtain blood samples for diagnostic testing.
