Beyond the test result
Mayo Clinic Laboratories combines the expertise of world-renowned laboratorians and physicians to provide answers for patients’ serious and complex medical challenges.
These are the stories of the people throughout that journey — from the laboratorians conducting tests and delivering results, to the physicians guiding diagnosis and treatment, to the patients who need answers worldwide.
