Radiation Effects Testing

important information alert
COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in our region, the hours of operation for our Radiation Effects Testing Program have changed. In order to ensure the safety of our cancer patients, the clinic is not permitting any visitors during regular business hours. This restriction will be in place through the end of 2020, possibly continuing into 2021, if necessary. We are working closely with clinic officials to find ways to allow for testing on weekends, off hours, or remote testing as alternatives. Please contact Jewell Overton for the most up-to-date-information.
