Testimonials and References


“I have been continually impressed by their commitment to accuracy and patient care. Their client service is unfailingly efficient and helpful. DCI has extended their hours of service to ensure specimens are quickly processed to maintain rapid turnaround times. The DCI lab infrastructure functions to promptly relay critical cytogenetic information to the patient’s bedside- every day and every time. Their input is acknowledged and appreciated by myself and my clinical colleagues.”

“I have been using DCI for cytogenetic analyses for more than 25 years. I have found them to be consistently delightful to work with. Their staff is intelligent, easy to talk to, and well informed. Since they are dedicated to chromosome analysis, they have a short turn around time and I receive my results in a timely manner. On multiple occasions over the years when I have had an urgent situation requiring special attention, they are always happy to do that and work with me to get the best information possible to the patient in the fastest amount of time. I have thoroughly enjoyed all my encounters with DCI staff and highly recommend their services to anyone seeking high quality professional cytogenetic services.”

“Our pathology group has used Diagnostic Cytogenetics services consistently…for FISH and cytogenetic testing. We have a busy heme path service with complex case material, and thus require the support of a lab with comprehensive services and high standards. DCI provides us with a broad panel of FISH studies and conventional cytogenetics with a rapid turnaround time. We receive our reports in an extraordinarily timely fashion and we are able to view their reports online. Not only is their office staff friendly and knowledgeable, but the support we receive from their professional (MD and PhD) staff is unparalleled. We could not be more satisfied with the quality of their work and service.”

“I have sent out thousands of chromosome analyses to Diagnostic Cytogenetics over the last 25+ years, and I can unconditionally recommend this exemplary laboratory.  Their quality of service, turnaround times and availability for urgent telephone consultations are unmatched.

“Their diagnostic accuracy and turnaround times in my experience are unmatched, allowing nearly immediate correlation between morphologic, cytogenetic, and/or molecular results… I very much appreciate working with a local organization that does high quality work. It is very easy to call them and immediately get a real person on the phone. They are more than willing to answer questions or give advice. I also note how they are willing to call us if they have questions regarding an individual patient, or to suggest additional testing that might be of value.… I consider DCI to be a high quality organization that offers excellent turnaround times and unbeatable service to its customers. I recommend them without reservation.”
