We are constantly asked, “What makes Sherman Abrams Labs better?” And we actually love that question!

It gives us an opportunity to explain.

Although we can get into a long and tangled answer with a lot of fancy words, it all actually boils down to two simple words:

“Our people”.

When a lab has the right people that are motivated to perform at the highest level, not because they “have to” but because they CARE,

it makes all the difference.

I believe that when you surround yourself with people that are professional and passionate about what they do and build the best team you possibly can, there is nothing that cannot be achieved.

Josh Reifer

Chief Operating Officer

Never settle for just good, always strive to improve. Understand that every sample represents a person; a person that trusts us. I never take that trust for granted. Never let “just good” prevent you from seeking excellence.

Sal Prifitera

Business at its core is about building relationships and striving for common goals. Whether it is with our team at Sherman Abrams Labs or our customers and patients, my focus each and every day is on what I can do to support the continuous improvement of our services levels and ensure the quality of our results. What can I do to enhance the complete Sherman Abrams Labs experience. At its foundation – What can I do for you today?

Phil Hayden

To me as a numbers person our motto of “It’s not a number, it’s a life” rings especially true. The nice thing about being a part of this team, and teamwork in general is that you always have others on your side.

Eddie Rozenfeld

Chief Strategy Officer

I am a perfectionist; I believe that when you do something you need to do it right. Being able to take that passion and turn it into a force that helps the laboratory grow and in turn helps people on a daily basis is something I am very grateful for.

Joshua Stein, Esq.

I am guided by the maxim that “to cross an ocean you must have the courage to lose sight of the shore”. At Sherman Abrams, I am proud to support and be part of a strong, company-wide team with the courage to be constantly innovating and dedicated to finding opportunities to improve the quality of our services and patient experience.

Dr. Vincent Streva

Laboratory Director & Assistant Medical Director

A laboratory is as good as the people that work here, and I am extremely proud of our lab and our amazing employees. For me patient care is never a compromise, we do everything that needs to be done to ensure that our clients and patients get accurate results and testing options that matter.

Christina Amaral

Technical Director, Anatomic Pathology

I am fortunate to be doing what I love. For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to make a positive difference in other people’s lives. I believe that the attention that we give every single sample at the laboratory positively impacts our patients’ lives in a multitude of ways, I am very proud to be part of this amazing team.

Kubir Bola

Associate Vice President of Client Relations

As a positive person by nature, it is my goal to bring that positivity not just to our lab, but also to our clients and patients daily. I firmly believe that customer service isn’t just a department, it is the organizational culture at Sherman Abrams.

Our team of caring professionals makes all the difference

Established in 1964, Sherman Abrams Laboratory is a full service clinical diagnostic laboratory, providing laboratory service to its patients, physician offices, nursing homes, adult homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, dialysis centers and home-bound patients. 
Dr. Abrams’ goal was to establish a small, local, community based laboratory that was not hindered by the bureaucracies and impersonal service that doctors and patients faced when dealing with some of the larger national laboratories. 

Although Dr. Abrams is no longer with the company, we use the mission of “it’s not a number, it’s a life” as a guiding light in assuring that all our clients and their patients are always our number one priority.

Throughout the entire laboratory, there are people that make a direct and meaningful difference to our clients and patients on a daily basis. Whether it is the phlebotomist taking that extra step to make sure that the patient is comfortable, or the accessioner double-checking the handwritten requisition to make sure that they didn’t miss a single test, or the IT crew, Salespeople, Technicians, Technologists, Pathologists, QA professionals, Billing, HR, etc, paying attention to the small details. EVERY SINGLE ONE of our employees’ actions; directly or indirectly, affects the outcome of patient care.

That is our difference. We understand. We care.
