In-House Laboratory Q & A

What is an in-house laboratory?

When your doctor orders a blood test, health screening, or urinalysis, you typically have to schedule your test with an outside lab or hospital. This is both time-consuming and stressful for patients who don’t have the time to drive across town for blood work. An in-house laboratory, on the other hand, cuts out the middleman, so you go in for testing right away and receive your results sooner.

At Physicians of Hollywood, the highly skilled and trained team’s in-house lab is equipped with the most advanced medical technology available. This helps with identifying any health concerns and possible diseases in your body quickly and accurately.

Which types of tests can an in-house laboratory perform?

Physicians of Hollywood’s in-house laboratory performs a number of tests from the comfort of its state-of-the-art facility, including:

  • Urinalysis
  • Mononucleosis test
  • Glucose level
  • HIV antibody test
  • CBC (complete blood count)
  • Hemoglobin A1C
  • LFT (liver function panel)

If you are suffering from illness or disease, these vital tests help the team determine the next steps in your testing or treatment process. They also identify potential risk factors for your health, affording you a better chance of preventing future disease and illness.

Why would I choose a practice with an in-house laboratory?

Time is everything when preventing or treating a serious disease or health concern. Not everybody has the time to visit their doctor and an off-site testing lab on the same day, so more often than not, they delay the second appointment until a later time.

Because off-site labs also work with a variety of practices, they cannot guarantee that your particular test is their top priority. This leads to further delays in your results — time that could be spent creating your unique treatment plan if the test produces a positive result.

At Health Associates, the team performs all tests under one roof, in an office where you already feel comfortable. Aside from these time-saving benefits, in-house testing eliminates the stress of driving to an off-site facility and waiting in yet another office.

The Health Associates team wants to run your tests as soon as possible to create your comprehensive care plan if need be. That’s just one more way they strive for efficiency and convenience at their facility.
