Laboratory Services Q&A
What are laboratory services?
Laboratory services involve the collection and testing of certain bodily fluids and tissues to identify signs of disease. Blood testing, urinalysis, and tissue sample testing are common forms of laboratory services that TX Primary Care Plus offers.
While lab testing is essential to detect the presence of disease and identify potential risk factors, many practices are not equipped to perform onsite testing. That means people must travel to a separate facility for their tests.
TX Primary Care Plus eliminates the need to travel to another location for testing by offering a full range of in-house laboratory services. People can meet with their doctor and get any necessary lab testing under one roof.
Are there different types of laboratory services?
The internal medicine specialists at TX Primary Care Plus offer a wide selection of onsite laboratory services, including:
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Basic metabolic panel
- Comprehensive metabolic panel
- Liver panel
- Lipid panel
- Thyroid-stimulating hormone testing
- Hemoglobin A1C
Whether your doctor is monitoring an ongoing health concern or investigating new symptoms, laboratory services give your medical care team vital information regarding your health.
What are the benefits of in-house laboratory services?
Lab testing plays a crucial role in diagnosing, testing, monitoring, and preventing disease and illness. By offering in-house laboratory services, the TX Primary Care Plus ensures that you get your results as quickly as possible. The earlier you receive your results, the sooner your doctor can determine your next steps in treatment.
In addition to providing quick results, in-house lab testing saves you time and money on travel. Without the cost of gas, wear-and-tear on your car, and parking, you don’t have to waste money on unnecessary fees. That is especially true if you have a chronic condition that requires regular lab testing.
As an all-inclusive practice, TX Primary Care Plus also caters to people who may not be healthy enough for in-office lab testing. The team offers mobile lab services and X-rays to test patients from the comfort of their own homes.
