Jack Sparagowski, Reliable Drug Testing Clinic director, has relocated his business to 7135 Sylvania Ave. Jeremy Miller of JMS Real Estate Properties negotiated the lease on behalf of Sparagowski. Megan Malczewski, CCIM of Signature Associates was the listing agent for the building. “We needed more space as we had outgrown our former location. We were fortunate that this facility became available as our lease was running out,” Sparagowski noted.
“This is a good location for us with high visibility, easy accessibility and convenient parking. This building works well and can accommodate our growing company’s space requirements. In addition, to the first floor suite of offices, we have a 2,000-square-foot basement for additional storage,” he noted.
Sparagowski founded the clinic in response to a request from the Sylvania Probation Department in December 2010. “We started the clinic offering drug testing services. Now, we have added a full menu of services including drug and alcohol testing, ink and electronic fingerprinting for the State and FBI, health assessments and DOT physicals, hearing tests, respirator fit testing, as well as blood and urine testing for arsenic, benzene, lead and other heavy metals along with other occupational testing protocols. We are affiliated with Ohio’s Workers’ Compensation’s Drug-Free Workplace Program and offer pre-employment, post-accident and random testing for many local corporations and unions,” he explained. On-site after hours testing for accidents and reasonable suspicion issues is also provided on a 24/7 basis.
Two registered nurses, two nurse practitioners and a collaborating physician are on staff to provide health assessments, DOT physicals, pulmonary function tests, respirator fit testing, administer vaccines and other occupational diagnostic assessments.
In addition, the company offers Homeland Security-compliant screenings for Hazmat drivers, Transportation Workers Identification Cards and background checks for the TSA Precheck cards used by frequent travelers.
“We also have an electronic specimen reader, which distributes test results to our clients and our Medical Review Officer, and prepares invoices automatically,” Sparagowski pointed out.
The clinic is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 am to 5 pm, Tuesday from 10 am to 6 pm, and Thursday from 1 to 7 pm. “People who come to the clinic for drug or alcohol testing or fingerprinting can just walk in and complete their tests in usually 15 minutes or less,” Sparagowski promised. “However, we do require scheduled appointments for medical assessments, physicals and other diagnostic testing services.”
Sparagowski credits much of the success and growth of the clinic to the excellent client service offered by his staff along with the short wait time experienced by clients seeking drug or alcohol testing or in need of fingerprinting. “People needing those services are in and out spending a minimal time waiting,” he assured.
In addition to overseeing the clinic, Sparagowski is available to do presentations on drug testing for groups.
