Atherotech Opens Patient Service Center in Sarasota, Fla.

Physician open house marks availability of comprehensive VAP+ Lipid Panel cholesterol testing to Sarasota and Bradenton area physicians and patients

March 27, 1014 — Atherotech Diagnostics Lab opened its patient service center in Sarasota, Fla. A physician open house in November celebrated the opening of the center 4014 Sawyer Road, Sarasota, Fla.

The new center enables area physicians and medical practices to send patients directly to the service center for the VAP± Lipid Panel comprehensive cholesterol profile instead of having to go through third-party laboratory service centers. This patient service center will be staffed by Atherotech professionals, who will provide high quality patient care and specimen collection.

“This brings the physician and patient closer to the VAP+ Lipid Panel, making it convenient for area residents and their providers to access the most comprehensive assessment of heart disease risk and subsequent prevention strategies available,” said Atherotech Vice President of business operations Alan Hokanson.

Hokanson said the center adds to the growing number of Atherotech patient service centers nationwide to keep up with increasing demand for the VAP+ Lipid Panel.

The Sarasota location will be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Patients with a physician’s order simply visit the center and provide a blood draw, which is then sent directly to Atherotech’s laboratory in Birmingham, Ala., for processing.
