What do lab services include?

Lab services include diagnostic tests to identify the cause of pain and other symptoms resulting from an acute or chronic health issue. These tests may be necessary when a physical exam doesn’t provide enough answers about your health.

San Feliz Urgent Care offers a range of lab services on-site, so you don’t have to travel elsewhere to get a diagnosis. The medical team has extensive experience using the latest technologies to provide prompt, accurate results.

Which lab services are available?

The lab services available at San Feliz Urgent Care include:

  • Blood tests
  • Urine tests
  • X-rays
  • Strep throat culture
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing

Your provider uses the results of your lab tests to create a treatment plan for any health issues they identify. Because you won’t need to go anywhere else for diagnostic testing, you can start treatment without delay. 

You can also avoid the hassles of the hospital emergency room when you or your child aren’t feeling well.

When would I need lab services?

The San Feliz Urgent Care team uses on-site lab services to identify the cause of sudden or usual symptoms like abdominal pain, nasal congestion, and fatigue.

They can order bloodwork, X-rays, or other diagnostic tests during a sick visit to confirm acute or chronic conditions like:

  • STDs
  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Pneumonia
  • Bone fractures
  • Sinus infections
  • Strep throat
  • Heart disease
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Urinary tract infections

The team also uses lab services for preventive screenings to identify underlying health issues before you have symptoms. Lab tests might be a part of your annual wellness exam if you have risk factors for certain diseases due to your age, existing health, or family medical history.

Your provider can also recommend STD testing if you have unprotected sex with a new partner or multiple partners. Routine STD screenings can prevent the spread of disease to others and protect you from long-term health complications of gonorrhea, syphilis, and other STDs.

If you’re taking medications to manage an acute or chronic disease, you may need routine lab work to ensure the treatment works. For instance, if you take medication for high cholesterol, the team can order blood tests to monitor your cholesterol levels.
