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:
Hematology – Blood cell analysis
Microbiology – Growth of abnormal bacteria and fungus
Bank – Match of donor units with patients in need of blood transfusions
Pathology – Diagnosis of abnormal, primarily cancerous, cells by processing
tissues from surgery
Chemistry / Special Chemistry – Diagnosis and treatment by using serum to analyze chemical components
Serology / Immunology – Detection of specific disease states by using antigen antibody reactions
Urinalysis – Conducting chemical and microscopic exams of urine for diagnostic purposes
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's 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.
