At HNL Lab Medicine, we consider the overall experience for our patients, and your little ones are no exception. Collecting blood samples from the pediatric population requires a special skillset that takes the unique needs of the pediatric population into account.

Our pediatric-centric experience includes pediatric-certified phlebotomist, kid-friendly draw rooms, and educational material tailored to children to provide insight and reduce anxiety surrounding blood work.
