On-Site Medical Lab Testing Q & A

What on-site medical lab testing services are available?

The Old Fourth Ward Pediatrics on-site medical lab can quickly diagnose a variety of acute and chronic conditions. Through the lab, the medical team offers in-office results for:

  • Flu virus
  • Strep throat
  • Blood sugar testing
  • Hemoglobin levels
  • Cholesterol screenings
  • Urinalysis
  • Mono test

The Old Fourth Ward Pediatrics team also uses the on-site medical lab to confirm a pregnancy and screen for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Will my child need blood work or urine testing?

Blood work can be useful for diagnosing unexplained symptoms or to monitor your child’s overall health, especially if they’re taking medications or undergoing treatment for existing conditions. The Old Fourth Ward Pediatrics team may request routine blood work during your child’s annual physical or if they need a diagnosis for fever, pain, or other symptoms.

A urinalysis is also beneficial for quickly diagnosing underlying medical conditions, especially urinary tract infections. Your pediatrician may request urine testing to identify the cause of abdominal pain or fever, or to monitor diabetes.

What are the benefits of on-site medical lab testing?

When your child isn’t feeling well or is in pain, you want diagnostic results quickly. By using the on-site medical lab testing services at Old Fourth Ward Pediatrics, your pediatrician can quickly identify or rule out conditions that contribute to your child’s symptoms.

In-office lab testing ensures you and your child won’t have to wait long for results. During your child’s sick visit, you won’t have to leave the office to receiving testing elsewhere. Once your pediatrician understands the root cause of your child’s illness or symptoms based on the results of the lab tests, they can create a treatment plan to help your child feel better as soon as possible.

On-site medical testing is also convenient for confirming a pregnancy in the earliest stages to ensure prenatal care gets started right away.

Testing for STDs is also important for protecting the overall physical and reproductive health of young adults. The earlier treatment begins for many diseases, the more successful it will be. It’s also important that STDs are properly identified to prevent the spread of disease to others.
