Lab Services Q&A

What are lab services?

Lab services are specimen tests that help the team at Health and Wellness Medical Services diagnose and treat illness and chronic conditions. Specimens include substances like blood, urine, and saliva. 

Lab services also offer insight into the current health of patients diagnosed with one or more chronic conditions. Based on your lab results, the team can adjust your treatment and medications as necessary.

Health and Wellness Medical Services can perform a variety of lab services in the office or at your home with its onsite mobile lab.

What types of lab services are available to me?

The CLIA waiver permits the team to perform numerous lab tests, including: 

  • Standard blood work
  • Strep throat testing
  • Internal normalized ratio (INR) testing

  • Urinalysis 

The waiver also ensures that Health and Wellness Medical Services performs the highest quality lab services.

Are lab services worth my time?

Lab services are extremely beneficial and always worth your while. Lab services provide the team at Health and Wellness Medical Services numerous advantages, including:

More accurate disease diagnoses

Lab services give the team specific and sensitive insight into your health. Using lab results, they can offer more accurate and detailed disease diagnoses. In turn, they can treat you more effectively.

The ability to determine infection causes

If the team suspects you have an infection, they can take cultures to quickly and accurately find your infection and determine its cause. 

Evidence of treatment efficacy, or lack thereof

By performing periodic labs on patients with chronic conditions, the team can see whether your treatment is effective. If your labs reveal that your condition isn’t improving or is worsening, the team can adjust your care plan.

If you need lab services, don’t go to the hospital. Instead, come into Health and Wellness Medical Services or have the team come to you with its onsite mobile lab. To schedule any needed lab services, reach out to the practice online or over the phone today.
