For your convenience, our office offers an on-site laboratory.
We have the capability to run complete blood counts, rapid strep tests, rapid mono tests, rapid flu tests, pregnancy tests, and tests for blood in stool. Results of these tests are available by the end of the visit. We also incubate overnight throat and urine cultures in-house to confirm the results of our rapid strep tests and urinalyses. Any additional necessary labs can be collected on-site and sent to our contracted reference laboratory.
Lab results will be reported to you once they have been reviewed by your physician or nurse practitioner. If you have questions concerning tests and lab results, please call our office and speak with the triage nurse during normal office hours.
