Lab tests use a sample of your urine, blood, or other tissues to gain insight into how well your organs and systems are functioning. The results are compared to a range of healthy readings from people who are the same age and sex as you.
Blood work is a type of testing that you need on a regular basis. Based on just a small sample of blood, your doctor gathers data on your thyroid function, white blood cell count, cholesterol, hormone levels, blood sugar, and liver and kidney functions.
Your doctor can also add additional screenings to routine blood tests. This allows for a more in-depth overview of your health and wellness. Men and women who take Warfarin (Coumadin) to reduce the risk of blood clots need routine screening to ensure the drug is working properly.
Many tests measure organ and system function using advanced technology. Premier Medical Care offers a wide range of tests that can provide details about your health.
Holter monitors are portable, battery-operated devices that record information about your heart’s function. After you wear the device for a time, your doctor reviews the date and determines if additional tests are needed.
Ultrasound is another powerful diagnostic tool. This imaging technology gives a view of your internal organs and tissues. It’s a great way to screen for disease without invasive procedures.
Additionally available screenings include:
Having access to these tests helps you make the most of your limited time and enables quick results and follow-up care.
Your doctor will advise you on which screenings are needed during your routine exams. Certain tests are called for every few years, while others are only needed when a routine exam reveals an area of concern.
You’ll always receive the full results of your screenings. This empowers you to make an informed decision about your health care.
