It can be really convenient to have immediate access to lab services, like when a person needs testing for their cholesterol levels, and it can be more than just convenient when a person needs a test like a pregnancy test. We offer immediate access to lab services in Parrish FL here at PrimeHealth Urgent Care. You can come see us today for same-day testing and same- or next-day results, no appointment necessary.
Can I get lab services at urgent care?
Yes, you almost always can. Urgent care clinics like ours usually have in-house laboratories and board-certified physicians for a number of lab services including pregnancy testing, testing for certain illnesses, and more. At PrimeHealth Urgent Care, our lab is state-of-the-art and our physicians are very professional and understanding.
When you go to urgent care for lab services, you don’t have to make an appointment, as urgent care accepts walk-ins. Also, you won’t have to wait long for your test results, as urgent care can process results onsite and quickly. In many cases, PrimeHealth Urgent Care can produce same-day results! You can expect us to keep these results confidential, between only you and the physician, but if you’d like us to, we can send them to your primary care provider. We can also send over any recommended prescriptions or suggestions for medical care, if applicable.
What lab services does urgent care provide?
Whether you need a test for your cholesterol levels, an STD test, or just about any other kind of lab test, we can provide it at PrimeHealth Urgent Care. There are different kinds of tests, like:
- Cultures – Tests for illnesses like the flu or strep throat
- Chemistry – Tests for electrolyte abnormalities or liver function abnormalities
- CBC tests – Complete blood count tests for disorders like leukemia, anemia, etc.
- Urinalysis – Urine tests for STDs, pregnancy, or drugs
- And others
For drug testing, we can provide drug/alcohol testing for employees, so if you’re an employee, you can come see us for a test, or if you’re an employer, you can contact us about testing your staff.
Also, if you have flu-like symptoms, please don’t come see us in-person for a test; call us instead for a virtual visit with us. This will ensure you don’t expose yourself or others to a potentially harmful virus.
What can I expect from a lab test?
It’s important to have a lab test done as soon as you can, especially if it was recommended by a physician. You don’t need to make an appointment for a test with urgent care; just remember to bring your referral form if you received one. When you arrive at our clinic, you’ll be greeted right away, and soon after, you’ll be able to speak with a physician. If you require a test, the physician will provide one.
The type of test you’ll need depends on the type of condition being tested for. Generally, the test itself is really simple. The physician may ask for a urine sample or a blood sample and then test it with the in-house lab. It can take 24 to 48 hours for the results.
