An on-site laboratory at Greenbrook Medical offers the opportunity to analyze lab tests you may need to diagnose a medical condition. The practice provides phlebotomy services, lab draws, urinalyses, urine cultures, and blood draws on-site to save you time and money. The lab analyzes these samples to look for signs of illnesses, injuries, or diseases.
The main benefit of an on-site laboratory is convenience. Some primary care offices send you to other locations to complete lab work. That means extra time and money for you in many cases. Greenbrook Medical offers the opportunity to complete a primary care evaluation and lab work all in one visit.
What you can expect during lab work depends on your health, symptoms, and risk factors. Providers discuss your medical history with you, check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may recommend one or more of the following:
Your doctor could take a tissue swab of your nose, throat, or other areas of your body to test them in an on-site lab.
If you need a urine test, you simply leave a sample of urine for Greenbrook Medical providers and their on-site lab analyzes it.
Blood tests could involve a finger prick or taking a sample of blood from a vein in your arm.
During a biopsy, your provider takes a tiny tissue sample and tests it for cancer or other problems. Your provider first numbs the treatment area to ensure you avoid any discomfort.
Greenbrook Medical offers results as soon as possible and reviews them with you.
If you have a medical issue requiring treatment, your doctor might recommend making lifestyle changes, taking oral medications, receiving injections, or other procedures. Your doctor can refer you to a specialist or hospital care if necessary.
