Comprehensive Diagnostic Test Services
Outpatient laboratories are popular services that provide patients with
a convenient method of receiving diagnostic tests without requiring a
hospital stay. With one quick visit, patients can receive a myriad of
tests that provide doctors with important information. These tests, in
addition to physical examinations, offer a comprehensive overview of the
patient’s overall health.
Blood and body fluids provide valuable information that are unobtainable
through other means. With regular diagnostic lab testing, patients are
in a prime spot to receive early diagnosis and treatment for potential issues.
The lab services available through outpatient testing include:
Urinalysis – chemical analysis of urine samples
Toxicology – Drug testing
Hematology – Analysis of blood cells
Immunology – Test of the body’s immune system and response to antibodies
Pathology – Examination and diagnosis of cancer from tissue samples
Special Chemistry – Analysis of enzymes to diagnose problems and prescribe treatments
Blood Bank – Storage of blood samples from donors for patients in need of transfusions
Microbiology – Study of abnormal bacteria and fungi to create new drugs and treatments
A physician order is required to draw your blood. Most lab tests can be
completed during normal business hours without an appointment. Some tests
do require fasting. Your physician office should indicate if fasting is
necessary for the testing. In some cases, specimens may be collected at
home and dropped off at the testing facility.
