Lab services are those extra tests and screenings that help in prevention and diagnosis of illness. At Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health, lab services include:
Many other medical practices refer patients to outside labs, which makes getting the test and your results that much more difficult. The on-site testing means you get your complete screening done right away, without delay.
Lab services are needed in several circumstances, for example, your provider might recommend testing if:
Lab testing can also give your provider information about how a current treatment plan is working. The results from lab testing can help the providers at Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health adjust your medications, diet, or other aspects of your therapy.
Lab testing is often part of a routine wellness exam, sick visit, or women’s health visit. The testing provides important information about your current health and if you are at risk of conditions like diabetes, high cholesterol, or hormone irregularities.
Usually, you don’t need to do anything before your lab service. If you do need to take specific steps, the staff at Family Medicine Clinic and Women’s Health will let you know.
For example, for some blood testing, such as cholesterol or glucose screenings, you need to fast up to 12 hours ahead of the test. For an EKG or bone density exam, you usually don’t need to do anything in advance of your screening.
The practice doesn’t provide more advanced lab services but can arrange for you to head to a trusted provider at a negotiated rate. Talk to the team about where to go to get an affordable MRI, mammogram, X-ray, or CAT scan.
