Update About Lead Test Results

A recent article was written in the news regarding possible inaccurate lead levels(possibly too low after referral for a repeat lead level)  performed at Cincinnati Children's hospital.  These issues were in regards to using venous samples in the lead laboratory machines prior to 2017.  Pediatric Associates lead sampling is done via a capillary specimen and has been shown to be accurate using the laboratory machines in our office.  The issue has been addressed at Cincinnati Children's Hospital labs and anyone with possible inaccurate lead levels would have been contacted by Cincinnati Children's Hospital.  If there are any concerns, please contact our office.
