Lab facilities located at the same site as your doctor offer several advantages:
First, it's convenient. There's no need to schedule a separate lab appointment at an off-site facility and no need to take additional time out of your busy schedule to drive to an off-site lab and wait while your labs are performed. An on-site lab lets you have labs performed during the same visit as your exam.
Second, you get results much more quickly. With an off-site lab, you have to wait for your results to be emailed or faxed to your doctor's office, then make another appointment to discuss the results as well as your treatment options, which means it will take longer for any necessary treatment to begin.
Third, there less room for error when your labs are performed on site, while you're still in the office compared to many off-site labs that have hundreds of samples to manage.
Our lab is equipped to handle many types of tests and evaluations, including blood testing, stool testing, and urinalysis. We can perform lab testing to aid in the initial diagnosis of a disease or medical condition, an,d we can also perform testing aimed at managing long-term chronic diseases, like heart disease, high cholesterol, or diabetes. Plus, we can perform critical screening tests as part of a preventive care program to look for risk factors that can increase your chances of developing a disease so action can be taken to reduce those risks.
Lab tests are given following a comprehensive physical exam and a review of your medical history as well as other factors to determine the most appropriate screenings and tests designed to look for diseases or risk factors or to monitor ongoing treatment.
We accept Medicare, most PPO plans and fee for service. Because every plan and coverage is different for each patient, we ask that you contact your insurance carrier to verify if our office is an approved in-network provider of your plan before your visit to our office. Thank you.
