In-Office Diagnostic Testing Q & A
What diagnostic tests are available in-office?
Preventive care, management of chronic conditions, and treatment of many acute illnesses rely on diagnostic testing. When it comes to achieving your best health, Mercy Family Clinic makes high-quality care convenient for the whole family.
Dr. Azubuike and the team regularly perform diagnostic tests that include:
- Allergy testing
- Ankle-brachial index (ABI) test
- Flu testing
- Routine blood work
- Strep throat testing
- Cholesterol screen
- Diabetes screen
- Diabetic eye exam (required each year)
The clinic provides a range of diagnostic tests in the office, so you don’t have to visit a lab to get the care you need.
What are the benefits of in-office diagnostic testing?
In-office diagnostic testing is convenient and simple. From routine lab testing and blood work to allergy testing and screening for peripheral artery disease (PAD), you’ll find it all under one roof at Mercy Family Clinic.
Patients with chronic conditions like diabetes and high cholesterol come into the clinic for one appointment, getting an exam and any diagnostic testing they need completed, at one location.
If you have an acute illness like the flu or strep throat, you don’t have to make multiple stops for testing and diagnosis.
For an EKG or urinalysis, you can get your results right away, so you don't have to make another trip to the office.
A diabetic eye exam is required every year, and having your exam at Mercy Family Clinic saves you time, and you don’t have to make another trip to the eye doctor.
In many cases, in-office diagnostic testing means you don’t have to wait a long time for your results. The team performs the test, evaluates your results, and recommends a treatment plan that’s right for you.
Do I need diagnostic testing?
Whether you have an acute illness or a chronic condition, diagnostic testing could benefit you. The flu and strep throat often share similar symptoms, so convenient diagnostic testing means you'll get the diagnosis and treatment you need to start feeling better sooner.
If you have respiratory problems, Dr. Azubuike may recommend allergy testing. Allergy testing identifies allergens that trigger an allergic response or worsen asthma, and knowing your allergens means you can implement lifestyle changes to avoid or limit them.
Primary care for chronic conditions like diabetes and high cholesterol often involves routine lab work to monitor your health. If you’re at risk for PAD, Dr. Azubuike may recommend ABI testing as a first step to limit health risks.
