On-Site Laboratory

More convenient for you with faster test results.

The on-site lab at Symbios Health offers friendly, efficient, and accurate service. Our timely results help you make the best decisions with your provider regarding your health. Our on-site laboratory allows you to get the testing or screening you need without having to leave the building. In most cases, we process your lab work on-site as well, helping us get your results to you as quickly as possible.

Common Lab Services

Laboratory services are important for providing details about how well your body is functioning and determining if you’re sick. Your doctor may request a blood draw or urinalysis, or gather cells or a tissue sample, depending on which type of lab work you need.

Common laboratory services may include:

  • Cytology
  • Pathology
  • Microbiology
  • Drug testing
  • Routine or special chemistry
  • Urinalysis
  • Basic and comprehensive metabolic panels
  • Lipid panel (cholesterol)
  • Liver function tests
  • Glucose tolerance testing
  • Hemoglobin A1C
  • Complete blood cell count (CBC)
  • Culture testing (throat swab for strep throat)

How do I prepare for in-house lab services?

In some cases, you may need to do some preparation for your in-house lab service at Symbios Health. Certain lab services may require you to:

  • Fast for several hours or overnight
  • Stop taking your medications for a few days
  • Have a full bladder

Before your lab appointment at Symbios Health, your provider lets you know if any of these special preparations apply to you. If you don’t need to prepare, you can usually report directly to our lab on-property. Otherwise, you may have to come back another day for your lab work.

When Will I Get My Lab Results Back?

For some labs that check for illness, your doctor gets your results immediately. In this case, your doctor discusses your results with you right away and prescribes any necessary medication. Usually, it may take a few days for the lab to process your specimen. Because Symbios Health offers on-site lab testing, you can usually get your results back within about a week. Once your lab results are ready, your provider calls you with any pertinent information or schedules you for a follow-up appointment to go over your results and discuss treatment solutions. Symbios Health provides a variety of in-house lab services.
