About Alcala Labs

Alcala Labs was founded by a partnership between a healthcare attorney specializing in the defense of individual and institutional healthcare providers and a physician with one of the largest pain management practices in Southern California.

The lab grew out of frustration with existing laboratory providers and the conviction that Alcala Labs could do better. Smaller labs were not scientifically up to the task and, in many cases, were simply dishonest about the services they provided. Larger labs were either unresponsive or subcontracted critical complex lab services to unaccountable third-party labs .

Alcala Labs was built to react quickly to the needs of physicians who need to understand drug use and efficacy in their practices.  The Alcala difference is accessibility to its physician customers, responsiveness to their needs and inquiries, and customizable lab testing.

If a physician has a medical-legal question that arises from testing, he can immediately reach the company’s healthcare attorney President.  If a physician requires insight into how a particular test affects the course of a patient’s care, she can engage in a dialogue directly with the lab’s Medical Director. If there are questions about science and the development of new tests, our highly credentialed scientific team can be reached directly.

Widely in demand among a variety of specialties, Alcala Labs is of especial importance to drug rehabilitation, pain management, and psychiatry practices. We’re able to add assays as illicit “designer” drugs begin to appear, and our new pharmacogenetic department gives physicians the power to anticipate the right drugs and dosages to best treat their patients.

Located in San Diego, Alcala is a laboratory of national reach and reputation. It is among the fastest growing labs in the country, dedicated to state-of-the-art science and the highest quality service.
