On-site labs at Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic include bloodwork, X-rays, and ultrasounds.
Bloodwork includes blood tests that assess health, evaluate organ function, and screen for diseases.
Types of bloodwork may include a complete blood count (CBC) to check for anemia, basic metabolic panel (BMP) to screen for diabetes and kidney disease, or lipid panel to check blood cholesterol levels.
X-rays are imaging tests that create black-and-white images of the inside parts of your body. Bones appear white, organs gray, and air (in your lungs) black. Your provider may request X-rays to confirm or rule out a broken bone or look for signs of pneumonia.
Ultrasound is an imaging test that uses high-frequency soundwaves to create moving images of your internal organs, including your heart, gallbladder, kidneys, and thyroid.
Your provider at Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic uses ultrasound testing to evaluate your organs and look for signs of disease. The team specializes in women’s health and may also recommend an ultrasound to confirm a pregnancy or evaluate your reproductive organs.
Your provider at Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic determines when you need on-site labs. They may request you get bloodwork done before your annual physical exam to screen for health issues.
You may also need on-site labs when you come in for a same-day visit so your provider can make an accurate diagnosis right away. The team may also recommend on-site labs for chronic disease management so they can monitor the effectiveness of your treatment plan.
