Diagnostic tests are meant to assist in the diagnosis of a particular condition based on your existing symptoms. Your provider may order diagnostic tests to help rule out or identify a condition. Many of those diagnostic tests can be done right in your provider’s office.
Our laboratory is able to provide comprehensive studies on blood work. This testing is often used to monitor specific medical conditions, test drug levels, or to provide screening for a wide range of illnesses before symptoms occur.
Cancer screening tests look for cancer before any symptoms appear. These tests can find precancerous conditions, as well as active cancer. The sooner a cancer is detected, the greater the chance of a cure or remission.
In the event you are hospitalized, you will be seen by a hospitalist. Hospitalist providers are certified in Internal Medicine or Pediatrics. They stay in contact with us during a patient’s stay in the hospital and provide us with the information we need to continue care in the office.
