Blog Update

Welcome!

Welcome to NW Testing Drug Screens and Physicals inaugural blog! We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to our business. Our goal for this blog in the future is to offer brief but educational insights into the services we provide and introduce you to the team providing the care as well as updates on new or exciting services we may be offering in the future.

We have been providing drug testing and physicals within the Vancouver Metro area since 2008. Conveniently located near Vancouver Mall, we pride ourselves on providing friendly, confidential and professional care with each visit. In 2021, owners Terry and Beth Johnson joined with managing partner Melissa Cosgrove, NP to undertake a rebranding with a name change to NW Testing Drug Screens and Physicals.

Terry and Beth Johnson come from backgrounds in Operations and Project Management in the Financial Industry while Melissa Cosgrove comes from a Healthcare/Clinical Operations Background. Beth and Terry have nearly 15 years of experience of owning and operating a drug, alcohol and DNA testing business. They both have extensive backgrounds in project management in financial and healthcare-related businesses.  Terry holds a Batchelor of Science degree in Biology and is a Regionally Certified Professional Specimen Collector Trainer. Beth manages our DOT national consortium services and is a Certified Occupational Hearing Conservationist providing our audiometric screening services.

Melissa is a highly skilled clinician with 15+ years of experience in administering and implementing patient care, providing clinical assessments, maintaining health standards in the outpatient clinical setting, and employing her knowledge of medications and other therapeutic procedures/treatments in the management of chronic disease. She is board-certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner as well as a board certified Nationally Registered Certified Medical Examiner. She holds a secondary graduate degree in Education.

We know that substance abuse testing is not easy for anyone. It requires discretion, compassion and empathy. Our goal is to offer drug, alcohol, DNA testing and physicals in a highly professional yet confidential manner in a comfortable and friendly environment. To accomplish this goal, we ensure that our staff members are consistently trained according to the highest industry standards and that every client is treated with the same dignity and respect we would extend to our own families.

We look forward to caring for you!
