Who We Are
Drs Choice First

As laboratories have come and gone, the phlebotomy company has never stopped growing and is now known as Drs Choice First with over 95 phlebotomists in over 14 states.
In 2003, Drs Choice First acquired Accurate DNA Testing which expanded the company's services into the DNA testing market. With an AABB certified DNA collector in every city in Florida as well as in the Savannah, Georgia area we are able to provide same day service to DNA clients in the convenience of their own homes.
