Lab Testing for Children

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.

Amazing Care: Employees provided exceptional care to the children, and their service was outstanding. Our experience could not have been any better.
I was understandably anxious, the exceptional care provided by the staff helped make the whole experience go smoothly.
We love this lab, phlebotomists at this location consistently do a fantastic job, especially when working with children.
Staff did an excellent work with minimal discomfort to my child.

Pediatric Phlebotomy Specialist Training

Our pediatric specialty training covers both the technical and emotional skills required to provide our pediatric patients with the best experience possible.

Our pediatric certified phlebotomists undergo training on needle phobia, developmental milestones, anxiety reduction, special needs techniques, collection methods, and techniques for a painless draw.
