What is in-house lab testing?
In-house lab testing means many of the most common lab tests like blood work and urinalysis can be completed right in our office, without needing to schedule a separate lab visit or spend time traveling to a lab office. We use state-of-the-art lab testing equipment so you can feel confident in the accuracy of the results you receive.
What role does lab testing play in my healthcare?
Lab work can provide vital information about your health and the way your body works so we can develop a plan of care that’s focused specifically on your unique healthcare needs. Lab tests use bodily fluids that contain many markers of both common and uncommon diseases that may not be easily diagnosed using other methods like imaging or physical examination. Having lab work drawn in our office means we can get the results much faster so we can diagnose and treat your condition as soon as possible without delays that can occur while waiting for the lab to perform tests or report results.
What are the advantages of in-house lab testing?
Having lab work completed on-site, right in our office, means you eliminate the hassle and inconvenience of scheduling separate lab visits to a lab or hospital facility, and you also eliminate the need to travel to an outside lab. Plus, because tests are carried out in house, we will have access to them much more quickly, so diagnosis and treatment can begin even sooner. Having lab work completed in our office can also help reduce the risk of inaccurate lab work or results that can be inadvertently “mixed up” or incorrectly reported in a busy lab environment with lots of distractions.
