SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL) will experience the vital and expanding role laboratory testing plays in patient care during a tour of the clinical laboratory facilities at Sarasota Pathology and Sarasota Memorial Hospital, Tuesday, Feb. 19.

Pathologists James White, MD and Robert Spencer, MD will host the tour for Congressman Buchanan, starting at Sarasota Pathology's laboratory at 10:30 am and continuing at Sarasota Memorial's laboratory at 11:15 am.

"Sarasota Pathology and Sarasota Memorial Hospital play an important role in the effort to meet the community's health care needs," said Congressman Buchanan. "I look forward to visiting their labs and discussing healthcare issues affecting my constituents."

Dr. White said the tour will highlight important trends in diagnostic healthcare and will provide an opportunity to demonstrate the critical role medical laboratories provide in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.

"With the rapid pace of change in medicine today, and the advances in genetics testing, laboratories are becoming central players in clinical decision making," said Dr. White. "This tour will illustrate some of these advances, and will show how the laboratories function to support the healthcare needs of physicians and patients in the community."
