LAB WORK: Samples are collected by the nursing staff or health care provider, and are either completed at the time of service or are sent to Quest Diagnostics by daily secure courier.  Red Hook Family Medical Group does not have full in house lab services. Our offices are CLIA waived.

Just as in the Continental U.S., some labs are done locally, and some samples are collected, prepared and sent to regional laboratories in the U.S. for analysis with results returned to us electronically.  The average wait time for lab results is not delayed due to our practice location in the U.S. Virgin Islands because of the special arrangement we have with Quest Diagnostics.

IN-OFFICE MEDICAL CONSULTATION SERVICES:  TRAVEL medicine consultations are available for any area of the world you wish to travel to.  Many vaccines can be administered by our offices, or we can refer you to a local center where they can be obtained.  We can prescribe prophylactic medication to prevent infection, and we can see you after returning from an area for screening of disease or treatment of specific travel related problems.    

COUNSELING services are available by referral through independent professional counselors practicing in the community.  These professionals work closely with the entire clinic healthcare team and patient care is often co-managed by a physician and a mental health therapist, especially in situations where prescription medications are incorporated into the treatment plan.    

PATIENT ADVOCACY.  This means that when you are a patient at our clinics, we are committed to staying by your side and remaining involved in your care whether you need consultation with a specialist, surgery requiring hospitalization, medical evacuation to a regional treatment center, or end-of-life care.  As primary care physicians we believe that you receive the best care if the doctor that knows you best does not simply "transfer care" to a specialist, but stays involved and informed about your progress, in communication with the specialist or the hospital team as your patient advocate, and resumes your care when you are discharged from specialty care.    

OTHER DIAGNOSTIC SERVICES:  Other services locally available that we refer our patients to and regard highly for their competence, accuracy, and excellent professional service include:
